The Running Photographer

I was out for a mid-week trail blast this week and given the beautiful Spring conditions decided to record a little video. As you can see I like to use my running as a recon. mission for future photography sessions.

Big changes since my last post. I won’t go into the details but you can read all about it here. As for my recovery and path back to some kind of fitness? Well it’s coming together, one day at a time. I’ll be updating my progress in more detail in the next week or so.

By the way, every time I slip on my Inov-8 Rocklites it’s like putting my feet inside two tubs of buttery runner’s goodness. That’s the best way to describe them. They are so so so dam comfortable. Certainly more comfortable than any road shoe I’ve ever worn. Can’t wait to really put these puppies through their paces this year.


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 ….
