Weekly Activity  Long Run This weekend’s training was a bit of a hodge-podge, which was fun. On Saturday, Veronica and I went down to Alaminos – one of our favorite spots on the island – and ran along the beach for a few miles. Here’s the Strava info: Then, we whipped out our picnic basket …

Weekly Activity  Long Run This weekend was the long-awaited Akamas 50k race! All went to plan and it was a great event. Spoiler alert: I didn’t come close to the podium. Instead, I took it nice and easy to avoid any risk of injury and enjoyed the views. There was a great turnout and the …

Weekly Activity  Long Run My long run this week (yes, only one) took place on my favorite section of the Besparmak Trail in the North of Cyprus. This area has spiderweb-like trails that go in nearly every direction with seemingly endless routes of varying difficulty. Because I am preparing for the Akamas 50k race …

Weekly Activity  Long Run This weekend’s long run(s) was a nice “two-fer”. I took the day off from work on Friday and went to explore this village called Mitsero, which is known for having a huge pyrite mine and a “red lake” that has been stained by all the runoff and chemicals. Truth be …

Weekly Activity  Long Run This week I scouted another section of the Besparmak Trail in Northern Cyprus, one which was included as part of the Two Castles 50K I won last May. This section is scenic, rugged, and a bit overgrown, but it was a lot of fun nevertheless. I began at Tatlisu Pass, which …

   Long Run I was back in the thick this weekend with my longest run for quite some time. I decided to do a section of the Besparmak Trail in Northern Cyprus that I hadn’t yet run, but I had to drive an hour to get there. The starting point was the village of Koruçam, …

   Long Run I had a good week of runs and nice long run this weekend. I tried to keep it consistent and put some miles on the legs every day, which really helped boost the volume. On Sunday I went up to Northern Cyprus and did a stretch of the Besparmak Trail that …

   Long Run As the last holiday weekend presented itself, we took the opportunity to travel to Kiev, Ukraine to see some friends just after my brother and his girlfriend departed. As you can imagine, it was a bit colder than in Cyprus, so we had to pack accordingly! Surprisingly, though, it was in …

   Long Run Once again, I didn’t have much of a long run this week – and won’t next week, either. My brother and his girlfriend are visiting from Los Angeles and I’ve spend the last few days showing them around Cyprus. I only get to see him about once every 18 months, so …
