A Source of Inspiration

I love to read about other people’s adventures. It servers as a real source of inspiration in my own life. Someone who I met at a meet-up in London (organised by another inspirational adventurer, Al Humphreys), Anna McNuff is on a journey of EPIC proportions. She is attempting to run the Te Araroa Trail in NZ, all 1864 miles (3000km)of it.  She has been going for just almost 2 weeks with a couple of hundred miles down.

As she says in her latest blog update, her adventure isn’t just about HER adventure, but also about the people she meets along the way including Ron, who sold his house in 2013 and now travels the globe under human power.

What else am I supposed to do with the rest of my life..?” he asked. “Sit around, cutting the grass at home, waitin’ to die? No thanks. I’d rather be on a trail or a river instead. So here I am.

Check up on her photo updates here and via twitter here. Oh and don’t forget you can also donate to her cause here.

Anna, you are amazing and from the other side of the planet continue to be a true inspiration for me and I’m sure most who come into contact with you.

Keeping going ….

Yay I’m FIXED !!!!

Okay, perhaps not … but you know what I’m bloody impatient .. so I’ve just been out for a 4 mile plod around the fields ….. felt no worse than normal so I take that as a good sign.

Seeing a specialist next week, until then I may have time to get a few more runs in .. heck he may even say it’s all in my head and there’s nothing wrong with my Achilles (the bulge is just a fashion accessory) …

Okay perhaps not …. but I’m going bonkers not being able to run ….

/Grumbles !!!!
