Spring’s Here!

Happy Belated International Woman’s Day!

Spring’s here early! My winter coat’s waiting in the laundry wings to be put away until next winter (might be a little too eager saying that and jinx it) and I’m gradually switching out layers for lighter layers.

I wasn’t sure if going to run. Spartan Race Espana weren’t putting on buses from Barcelona city centre as they have done in previous years and with no car or knowing Continue reading “Spartan Super Recap And Catch Up”

Daylight Saving started today and while my unintentional lie-in was way later than I wanted, I enjoyed cycling back this evening sans bike lights. Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference.
