What is the Perfect Running Distance?

The short answer? Whatever you want it to be! (or maybe not – see the update below…) Running should be fun and not a chore. I love 5k runs even though I have run longer distances. My friends and I decided to participate in a couple of 10k runs for charity and so I trained […]

Running in Boston

Boston is one of my favourite cities in the world. Every time I get to visit, I try to add a couple of days to my trip. I like that I can walk many places and that there is history around every corner. Last time I was there I stayed in a hotel near the […]

Running in Zakynthos

Recently I went on a well-deserved break to one of the Greek isles: Zakynthos. It’s not very big and you are nowhereย allowed to drive faster than 50km/hr so definitely relaxing! We stayed in an off the beaten track apartment in the north of the island and we had a great time. And of course, after […]

When The Shoe Doesn’t Fit

Ever since I took up running I’ve run in Asics. The size is right and I like the cushioning. For many years I bought their GT2000 shoes and they served me well. Until my old ones had to be replaced and I went to the store to pick up a new pair. I didn’t give […]

Running in Chelmsford

Another work trip and this time I’ve ended up in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. It’s north of Boston, but I won’t be able to visit the city this time around – it’s a quick trip in and out. I have been here before and used the hotel gym, simply because it is no fun (not to mention […]

Running in Seville

When my sister told me she wanted to celebrate her birthday in Seville (Sevilla) it didn’t take me long to decide that was an excellent idea! After visiting Granada, I’d heard that the Palace in Seville is close in beauty, and of course the people from Sevilla claim the it’s better than the Alhambra. So […]

Running in Granada

Have you ever been to Granada? It’s an old city in Andalusia, Spain. I’ve been there a couple of times and I love visiting the city center as well as the Alhambra. If you can manage it, try to be there the week before Easter Sunday, when Spanish people celebrate Semana Santa (Holy Week). The […]
