29 km for Izzy’s 29th

 

Did it, enjoyed it and completely amazed at how quickly we can adapt when we’re challenged.

 

@izzy_engelhardt and I ran just over 29km for her 29th birthday, pretty much non stop in 3 and a half hours.

☀️Our route was a perfect piece of Portugal. 🌳It’s actually our favourite bike route for out of season guests.

⛱Starting out we climbed sand dunes, followed old fishermen trails between wild west coast beaches before running inland alongside (sometimes in it) a river ,through green, leafy valleys to the sleepy village in the hills. In nearly 30km we saw a couple of 🎣fishermen precariously placed on the cliff edge, 4 mountain bikers, a couple walking and a few locals on dirt bikes.

BUT: Besides the nature, the ultimate reason why this simple sport is so good wherever you are:

Running for any distance at ease is a great solace for the mind. 🧘‍♀️

It tunes out the negatives of everyday life and like a moving meditation, nurtures the positives and improves your outlook – on everything. On days I run I am heaps more productive, am in a much better mood and generally a much nicer person.😅

Basically it’s insurance for everyone that I keep running.🤟
