AN OUT OF COUNTRY EXPERIENCE!
With a winter carpet of emerald green, morning mist on sapphire lakes, hill walking and charming historic towns you could be forgiven for thinking you had woken up in England's lakes district or the Scottish borders!
LET THE HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT BEGIN
Late Autumn, Winter and early Spring are times for big waves, book your front row seat for a glimpse of the age old battle that has shaped this spectacular coastline. My favourite is Loch Ard Gorge where the roar of the ocean is amplified by the many bays, gorges, caves stacks and cliffs that repel the ocean at every angle in mighty plumes of backwash, spray and foam.
There is a feeling of escape and discovery that only a holiday run can deliver on. Exploring a new destination on foot is one of my favorite things to do. There is something about new places that makes us lace up our runners that little bit tighter. Unfamiliar terrain and new sensory input triggers a primal physiological response that heightens the senses and dials the fun meter up to 10.
RUN LIKE AN ANIMAL, SHOOT LIKE A 5 YEAR OLD WITH A NEW WATER PISTOL
When the scenery is this good being in the the right place at the right time will often beat equipment and technique.
COME AS YOU ARE....LEAVE A LITTLE DIFFERENT!
In a primal sense we lead a sheltered existence. Necessity removes many of us at arm’s length from the natural systems we are connected to. Milk comes from supermarkets and green buckets placed on suburban streets remove daily waste from sight and mind.
