Maori Race and La Roca Village

Last Sunday we ran the Maori Obstacle Race, a 7km obstacle race 35 minutes just out the city in Aria Natura. It wasn’t my best run. I was tired, my performance showed.

Illa Fantasia Parc Aquatic And Weekend Catch Up

This past Saturday we went to the Illa Fantasia parc aquatic about a 25 minute drive away. Earlier in the week cycling to gym I was daydreaming about the crazy river (more…)
