Forbes Article: Lessons on Business & Life from Running a Continent

Posted by on Aug 24, 2017 in Conservation, Running, Survival | 0 comments

Lovely article in Forbes by Danielle Rossingh:- David Lowrie was 30 years old and climbing up the ranks as a management consultant at accounting firm Accenture in the City of London. But increasingly weary of the lifestyle and lack of work-life balance that come with working for a large international company, Lowrie embarked on a radical career change with his partner, Katherine, an ecologist. Both keen runners, the British couple became the first people to have run the Amazon Basin, clocking up 6,504 miles in a journey that started in freezing temperatures at the southern-most tip of the...

Published Today!- Running South America with my Husband and other animals

Spring accompanied us, unfurling her new leaves and blossoms and emptying her dizzying fragrances into the valleys, forests and mountains. My mood soared. Night arrived later and later as the sun refused to set. So the bustle in the woods and rivers continued: the local frog quartet clattered and tapped, a South American snipe rose high in its courtship display, shuddering notes through reverberating tail feathers in great arcs above our tent. While one side of the world awoke, we gently fell asleep. This is an extract from Running South America with my Husband and other animals which is out...

Running South America with my husband and other animals

I have a publisher! The above book title will be zooming into shops near you from this August! In essence the book is about David and my love affair with running and wildlife- so much so, that we ran a continent to meet its wild animals. How we lived life at its rawest; with insects crawling over us, sleeping in jaguars’ ‘back-yards’ and washing in ditches by the side of the road. Running marathons back-to-back for days on end, this crazy feat nearly cost us our marriage, health and lives…. More details to come!
