This is one of the most common queries for this period – is it okay to run with a cold. Especially after the Holidays where we have gone out more and dressed less!!

This weekend is the Agistri Running and Swimming Race 2017 and one of our favorite races on this beautiful tiny green island with its crystal clear waters and golden sands.
What more can one ask for! An ideal weekend of running and relaxing, just one hour from the Port of Piraeus!
The event is always perfectly organized and well attended because of this.
The people of Agistri are hospitable, making the whole experience magical.
I couldn’t help but post some great pics from our experience last year.
So sorry we couldn’t make it this year ……….. but make a promise for the next one in 2018.
The Poseidon Athens Half Marathon is one of our favorite races – even though it is a little longer than a normal half marathon, the route is breathtaking as it goes along the Athens South Riviera coastline.

I don’t know if its the weather being all grey and drab or just that it has come to the point again (for this year) that we need to say …..enough….. quote …..unquote, especially after our last blog….”marathon frenzy”.
During the last weeks we are getting a lot of “friends” telling us how “wrong” it is for us to be doing two marathons a year; reminding us on the impact that this will have on our bodies……….not forgetting to add at the end………and at “your age”!!
Two Greek runners outdid themselves in the Chicago Marathon last Sunday, 9th October 2016.
