A superb Seaside Woodland run this morning with Brigid, Georgia and Andy. 9.5kms on lovely terrain followed by a cool drink on Muro Beach. A great way to start the day! Well done, guys!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 'Another Day in Paradise' run this morning with Brigid and Mike. Lots of fresh air and stunning views, and 13kms clocked up by 9am! Well done, guys!
A great 'Stairway to Heaven' run this morning with Mike. We reached the bottom of the steps, told him that there were more than 365 now as they have added a few, 'OK!' he piped up, and he was off! We didn't see him for dust! We have renamed him 'Mike the Machine'! Well done, champ!
The mighty Mike! More a football player than a runner, he came out to do 9kms with us and ended up doing 20! Well done!
You can't remember the last time you had 10 toenails.
You always stretch whilst waiting in the queue at the supermarket.
You can eat your weight in spaghetti.
You get a haircut before a race but not before a date.
You don't laugh every time you hear the word 'fartlek'.
Talking about the colour of your wee is as natural as talking about the weather.
You're insulted when someone mentions how 'healthy' or 'well' you look.
While everyone is sleeping, you are up running, and while everyone's awake, you're sleeping.
Our Cloud 9 run was just the ticket this morning. All that fresh air, quiet countryside and mountain, along with lovely views and great company, was a wonderful way to start the day! Well done, Jonathan, for reaching the top without stopping once!
Due to an increasing demand for more off-road runs, we have added another route to our itinerary:
Sea Trail 12k
We drive out to this scenic route which leads us up into the green mountains where we find ourselves surrounded by peace and beautiful scenery. At the summit, we are awarded with views to both Alcudia and Pollensa bays, as well as to the open sea all the way to Menorca. A large part of this run is more of a ramble than a run and is ideal for those who want to throw on a rucksack, pop in a bottle of water and a sandwich and enjoy a leisurely morning adventure in a wild and rugged part of marvellous Mallorca.
