I walk – a lot. I run – a little. And I hike – occasionally. I’m lucky enough to live in two beautiful places: Hampshire and Cumbria, although if truth be told, the mountains win hands down.
Over the years I’ve backpacked numerous long distance trails, often in the company of my daughter or husband. The most memorable of these was when my daughter and I walked from Winchester to Windermere. I’ve participated in running events from 10k to ultra – although less so of late.
When I’m not out walking or running I teach Pilates – which is rather a change from years of teaching English, Art & Outdoor Education in senior schools.
Along the way I’ve learned a lot about what works for me, and I’d like to share some of those ideas here, along with occasional trip reports and kit reviews.
