Island Life Day 2

This morning I dared to venture outside for my morning run. There is not much in terms of routes to run, my research on Strava heat maps showed that most people, if they run here, just stick to the main … Continue reading

Island Life

Instead of running, I started the day with a very nice 2Km pool swim! Swimming is not really my strong suit, but neither was running, and I feel very much that I want to get better. First step in the … Continue reading

Journey to ‘our’ Island

Knowing that we would spend most of the day confined in a transport to our final destination, I went out early, hoping to find some kind of loop to run, close to our hotel, but alas, this is not really … Continue reading

Early morning 10K @ 99% humidity

Since we will be heading off to the airport again today, for our next travel adventure, I got out early for my run and while the temperature was milder, it was just as humid as yesterday.

Back to running in 99% humidity / feels like 43˚C weather

Yesterday I was just too tired from travelling to get out and join the weekly night run, but today I got my ass up and did a short, but still under 5min/km run along Marine Drive. The smell of burnt … Continue reading

Reunion

We started our descent onto Colombo on time, but this was one of the roughest approaches I had in a long time! We were rollercoastering so much, that after landing a young boy close to us, very audibly, relieved himself … Continue reading

The looooong trek home

After 6 wonderful weeks, enjoying a very hot, dry, very untypical for Germany summer, it is time to go back home. So, this morning I went out for my run BEFORE the sun had made it over the horizon, thus … Continue reading

Last Day …

While yesterday’s run started at 7:40 AM, today I was already out at 5:50 AM to greet the rising sun. The rest of the day was taken over by packing. Always a fun and nerv wrecking activity. While I always … Continue reading

Run / Döner

In preparation for the upcoming time zone change, I have begun to shift my runs to the morning time slot again (also, weather forecast predicts 30+˚C temps in the afternoon!) We then returned to the NordWestZentrum mall for some last … Continue reading

Flea market #3 / Horse farm

Once again we visited a nearby flea market (best thing to do on Sundays) and had lots of fun. There was a guy selling 1€ sunglasses, Julius introduced me the ‘mesh stress balls’ (and got one) and we smiled at … Continue reading

Found two more pics of last week’s summer camp that Julius is in. Must have been on one of their hikes, visiting “Deutsches Kulturgut!” And a fresh Julius with Cat photo today. Met this one-eyed feline on our evening walk. … Continue reading

Apparently it is never to early for Halloween Shopping

That was quite a surprise to see that Tedi had already decorated for Halloween! But no, we did not buy anything! For my run today I had planned a half-marathon, but even with extra water in my CamelBak, the heat was … Continue reading

Waldspaziergang / Run / Pink Sunset with Moon

Today was a rather mellow day, with another forest & looking for cows walk. At sunset time I went for a very nice run. And then later I saw that I missed the pink clouds. Would have looked more spectacular … Continue reading

Return to Kletterwald

As we did last year, we waited for good weather (and a week day with less people) to go back to the nearby forest adventure park ‘Kletterwald Taunus’. Having learned from our previous experience, we opted for gloves this time (3.90€ … Continue reading
