Run the Middle East!

  Yesterday I decided on the next phase of Run the World: Run the Middle East., 2,500km through Egypt, Jordan and Israel. Starting in the Gulf of Aqaba and running across one of the Middle Easts’ most iconic deserts, the wild beauty of the Sinai for 550km including Mount Sinai and Jebel Katherina the highest […]

So how does it feel to finish a 2,085 km run across 7 countries, with 40+ marathons in the last 45 days?

Bizarre, quite simply and I’m still struggling to compute … For 45 days I’ve had tunnel vision on each days distance, route, access to water, food and where I will sleep. Stretching, rehydrating and replenishing before I fall asleep was challenge enough and maintaining any semblance of personal hygiene had to come secondary. It has […]

Beautifully Tough Times ….

This week I’ve run from Klaipeda, Lithuania to Ventspils, Latvia doing an average of 48k with one rest day. I’m only 315km away from achieving my dream of 2000km Run across Europe and 355km from finishing Run Europe when I complete the Latvian coast and cross the Estonian border to reach 6 countries. Lithuania and […]

Living Your Dreams

Four weeks ago I left Eversberg, Germany to continue my run across Europe, which started in Schiphol, Netherlands. Crossing the border to Poland was the best run of my life: 65km, which a few weeks before would have seemed a huge distance. I was so elated to realise I’d run every step of the way […]

Change brings opportunity … of course 😜

I’ve achieved my first goal when I reached the Baltic Coast! It was incredible to know I’d run all the way from the Netherlands. I’ve been running longer distances than I expected, often 50km […]

Time to admit I got it all wrong!

Today is the twelfth day of my run across Europe and yes it’s definitely time to admit I got it all wrong. Pretty much everything!! But it’s ACE!!! I spent months and months meticulously researching, testing and miniaturising until I had the most ultra light kit. I examined routes across Germany, Poland and the Baltics […]

Achieving Impossible Dreams

On Friday I will set off to complete a 2000 km run across 7 European countries.Β Writing that sentence, reminds me of earlier, when someone asked, “So you’re running 1000 miles?” My initial reaction was ”No, its not that far”. Then I realised it was actually over 1200 miles!! Yikes! Last June, I set myself what […]

I never like packing for my holidays ..

Holiday packing is always a challenge. I travel most weeks, so you would think that I’d have it down to a fine art – not so! I am the type that packs just before the flight, getting up an hour early to pack my suitcase, even when I need to leave the house at 4am. […]

Little things make big things happen!

Who would have thought that mini toothpastes were an essential factor in Run Europe??My brain is completely consumed by the tiniest of details in finalising the plans for Run Europe. I can honestly say I didn’t anticipate just how much effort would be required. First there are Kit Decision! A huge amount of research, compromises […]
