Trip 7 week 1 diary added (Holland)

Well – what can we say! Day was perfect running conditions.  We were nice and relaxed. However, at 8 miles we both died!  A lot of pain as the picture of Mel at least shows.  I thought I was going to do a really poor time till Mr 1:35 pace […]

Amsterdam 1/2 Marathon

We’ve survived a second week – and surprisingly just in budget!  Had a great night out in Amsterdam last night and are stuffed as a pig today (me specifically should be described as “stuffed with a pig”). Had a busy week (yeah yeah – everything is relative) – over to […]

Week 2 over – Amsterdam is homely

Thanks for the emails we get!  And yes, sorry for not updating blog or anything else.  Problem is – we are getting Internet access when out and about mainly due to kind people leaving their home wifi on default settings J  So we can read and reply to emails absolutely […]

We have arrived – the trip has started!

In line with the plans, we’ve booked in for Amsterdam Half Marathon on 18th October.  We were planning to be in Germany – but hey – an extra week in Amsterdam J After that it should be a cool race man!  Way cooool!
