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.
