To round things up

It’s been just over 1 week since I completed my vivrunseurope challenge. It’s still all sinking in. Before going through my highlights I thought I’d share some footage of the final day, I think you might be able to tell how happy I was! Why run 3,850 kilometers? There have always been two main reasons […]

Kit list

A slightly more geeky post than usual but I thought I’d share my kit list for #vivrunseurope for those who are interested or that fancy doing their own expedition (DO IT!). If you fancy doing research on some of the kit, you’ll find that some of it is a little pricey. I was recommended by […]

#Day183 Penultimate run complete!

Torrguadiaro to Algeciras – 33km 14C Terrain: roads – hilly One more run left! Crazy crazy times! It’s funny, when you reach the end of a project, you always start thinking about the beginning. I remember being in Poland and Germany and telling people I was heading to Spain. Quite honestly I didn’t even believe […]

#Day180 Malaga! Getting there

Benajarafe to Malaga – 24km 17C Terrain: roads – nice and flat So I’ve made it Malaga, yay! Only two more running days now, it’s quite hard to absorb to be honest. Mum is arriving on Sunday and then hopefully I’ll reach Tarifa on Tuesday. Today’s route was pretty straight forward, flat and lots of […]

#Day179 Soaking up the coast

Maro to Benajarafe – 36km 17C Terrain: roads – nice and flat 🙂 Tomorrow I should arrive in Malaga, crazy! While trying to remain calm and focused, today was the first time I allowed myself to feel excited about Tarifa. I don’t want to get carried away with those thoughts though. Need to keep focusing […]

#Day178 Beautiful Andalucia

Salobrena to Maro (Nerja) – 32km 17C Terrain: roads (even more hills) Today was beautiful. The last bit in the mountains for now (until just before Tarifa) and hardly any cars, blissful. It’s moments like this that I’m trying to soak up as I approach the end of this journey. All the fresh air, nature, […]

#Day177 A beast to start

Castello de Ferro to Salobrena – 26km 15C Terrain: roads (more hills) Blimey, that was a tough start. The ‘mountain’ was hiding behind the rocks. 3 kilometers in and I was soaked and shattered! Push through and keep going. Fortunately, that was the toughest climb of the day, phew! Spotted these mountain goats on the […]

#Day176 Thinking

Adra to Castello de Ferro – 36km 19C Terrain: roads (lots of hills) After a couple of relatively flat days, today was a bit of a killer. Lots of hills and my route even ended with a particularly tough hill, ouch! I think another couple of days of this and then it’s back to the […]
