PARIS : TRACK MAFIA INTERNATIONAL

Ahead of cheering on friends that ran the Paris marathon, and after spending a good few days rambling around beautiful Parisian streets (and eating our weight in pastry) we decided to see out our stay by running a few laps on this hidden gem – centre sportif Emile Anthoine. The track is free to use, easy to get to, and with plenty of changing space. … Continue reading PARIS : TRACK MAFIA INTERNATIONAL

HOMIES HALF : BERLIN

Moscow meets Manchester, meets the streets of Berlin. It was a nice little surprise to stumble upon this one in the first few miles of the Berlin Half, running our way together to the finish line from then on in. Getting home to a sub 1.30 by high-fiving kids, shimmying to bands, and riding with the humongous boosts from the cheerdem cheering beauties dotted around … Continue reading HOMIES HALF : BERLIN

I’ve just been running.” Shit. What on … Continue reading THROWING CAUTION TO THE WIND : COUNTRY TO CAPITAL 45

DELAYED DECISIONS : COUNTRY TO CAPITAL 45

With a head telling me no, and a heart telling me oh go on then lass, get seeking, get muddy, doubt can go and do one, and delayed decision making can take a seat. On Saturday the 17th I’m running 45 miles of Country to Capital 45, from Wendover to London. I ran this race as my first ultra marathon last January, and was lucky enough … Continue reading DELAYED DECISIONS : COUNTRY TO CAPITAL 45

MTENDERE MANDOWA : TEEBS

When you start starring each and every one of the tracks on an album, I think it can be crowned as a keeper. California’s Mtendere Mandowa, more musically known as Teebs, can be recognised specifically by the mixed layering of his creative palette, a token theme within both his visual his art, and music production.   At the age of 26, Mtendere has grown from working as a singular teenage … Continue reading MTENDERE MANDOWA : TEEBS
