First winter in New Zealand

First winter for a while actually. For the last few years I've done a good job of escaping to the southern hemisphere over the UK winter for the majority of January.

It was Global Running Day last week (6th June) so what better time than now to write about being a guide runner at a race for the first time last weekend.

I eventually arrive to find my luggage didn’t make it. I’m not surprised; delays and me catching a different flight... Continue Reading →
