Imagine how it would feel to run into the Caribbean Sea… Now imagine running into the Caribbean Sea after having run a marathon whilst pulling a trailer weighing up to 100kg… Now imagine running into the Caribbean Sea after having run a marathon almost every day with a trailer for 15 months! This is the feeling the Katharine and David Lowrie experienced yesterday when they became the first people in the world to run the entire length of South America, unsupported, as part of their “5000mile Project”. “There were some really tough parts when you’re tired...

They never cease to brighten us up and remind us how amazing this wild planet is!

A break from running; time to find our parrot

We have been unusually quiet over the last week. The reason is we took time out to learn more about the charity, Armonia,  we are jointly running for. If a picture speaks a thousand words, please enjoy a 29,000 word essay below, click the arrow on the gallery to begin playback.
