I’ve moved cities 5 times in the last 10 years, and it has always been tough and challenging. Even worse, I had to change my fitness routine because all my favorite classes and running routes were no longer available. But I’ve also learned a lot on how to stay fit while moving and want to share that with you.
Are you thinking of escaping the cold and maybe running a nice, warm destination Marathon? Search no more, because there is Tel Aviv Marathon. It always takes place on a Friday end of February. Not only do they have a Marathon, but also a Half Marathon, 10km and 5km race. I ran Tel Aviv Marathon in February 2018 as my third Marathon in my 12 Marathon in 12 months project.
In July I ran the Spartan Ultra Beast in Nine Mile Burn in the south of Edinburgh. It was my second Ultra Beast after the Ultra Beast Hawaii I did last year with my friends from you are an adventure story.
I was running on my own, although I knew some people that were also racing and stayed at the same hotel.
As expected we had lovely Scottish summer weather, which means cold temperatures, heavy rain, wind and fog. Perfect conditions to test my wetsuit gear, and it turned out to be the right decision to wear it.
The Mozart100 race takes place in the beautiful town of Salzburg, Austria. They offer various distances, this year a 12.5km City Trail, the 30km Scenic Light Trail (that I did), the 42km Marathon trail, the 62km Scenic Trail and the classic 105 Trail. This one is very popular, as it is also a Western States 100 qualifying race.
