Keeping on track for 2018

This year seems to be flying by! I can hardly believe we're already nearly halfway through April! With the fact that we're already a quarter of the way through the year in mind it seemed like a good time to look back and see how we're doing in relation to what we wanted to achieve this year.

Tongariro Alpine Crossing

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a section of one of New Zealand's nine "Great Walks". This dual world heritage site takes you along 19km between two volcanoes; Mt. Tongariro and Mt. Ngauruhoe (that's Mount Doom!) through craters, over scree, past strangely beautiful lakes and vents of steam, it really is a unique hike!

Stockport Trail Half Marathon 2018

A couple of weeks ago we took on a pretty tough run, the Stockport Trail Half Marathon, organised by Crazy Legs Events. James had a bit of experience having taken part last year, it was my first time at the event and I knew it was going to be a tough one as we all stood in the pub before the start looking out at the snow falling!
