Thanks to our James from Liverpool for running with me this week. We enjoyed an invigorating coastal run this morning around Son Baulo. The rain stayed away though the sky looked a little ominous throughout. We enjoyed the fresh air and the stunning views and I got to peek inside the little church at Son Real as it was open due to a school trip. A great morning! ¡Hasta la próxima, amigo!
In preparation for his Liverpool Half Marathon later this month, I took James for a run up to La Victoria in Alcudia where we admired some breathtaking scenery, had a chat with a donkey and two dogs, I spotted a rude tree and then afterwards, James ate a pastry the size of his head. A great start to the day!
Hats off to James who despite over-indulging in the local Sant Antoni festival yesterday was up and ready to run at 8 o'clock. He joined me on a run up to my favourite place, Formentor, where the scenery and sensations were as stunning as ever. A fantastic start to the day!
Great to see James back out here for the Sant Antoni celebrations! We went out for a gentle jog through the Bóquer Valley on this splendid January morning! Peace at its finest.
I had great fun at the annual 7.8k 'potato race', Sa Llego, in Sa Pobla, yesterday in the lead-up to the Sant Antoni festival. There was an amazing atmosphere, as always, and each participant went home with a bag of potatoes, some pottery and a bottle of pop. The post-race beer went down well, as did the jacket potato!
Thanks to Jonathan for joining me this morning on a little jog through the Bóquer Valley - a hidden gem just off the main road and the perfect place to get away from it all for a while and soak up beautiful natural surroundings.
It was a pleasure to run with one of the greatest students I've ever taught this morning. Pep, who currently lives, works and studies in Edinburgh, is over visiting friends and family for a few days and managed to squeeze in a run over to Cala San Vicente with his old (but not ancient) English teacher, and on his birthday no less! Thanks, Pep, and Happy Birthday!
I ended 2017 fourth lady across the finish line in the Can Picafort San Silvestre 7k race, dressed as a Scot (which I am), won third prize - a pair of pyjamas - in the fancy dress competition and celebrated with a cold beer afterwards. My kind of New Year's Eve! :) Then, to start 2018, no prizes for guessing what I did. Yes, I went for a run - up to the Formentor lighthouse with a wee bottle of sparkles and enjoyed the magic and the moment, which is what it's all about, so HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all and may 2018 be filled with countless 'magical moments'! P.S. I'm taking a rest day tomorrow! Zzz ...
Whilst down in Palma to see the Christmas lights with the family, I snuck out for an early morning run with the mighty George Tunnell - 76 and still running strong. Hero!
