Summer 2017 #dorksinAfrica

Our plans are now pinned down for the summer season and man we’re pumped for it! Everything between now and August will be leading up to our summit attempt of the immense Mt.Toubkal , the highest point of North Africa.
This will no doubt be our most challenging adventure to date and we cant wait to share the experience with you all.

Between now and then however we have loads of awesome things lined up…not least the Orwell 25 Mile Challenge next month!

Stay tuned for more regular updates…

It amazes me how powerful music can be; and how the right track at the right moment can elevate your sensory experience to the next level. But the effects aren’t only felt right there in the moment; they’re way more long lasting than that…music acts as a kind of cement for our memories to sit in. In an instant of hearing a track from years gone by, our mind is transported not only back to that memory but the emotions, the feelings, everything.

This is why I make playlists; this one will forever remind me of going for jogs around the seafront village I currently live at on the coast of Suffolk. In years to come a photo won’t remind me of the ground beneath my feet and the salty breeze in my face – but these tracks sure will.

So go grab your trainers, grab a bottle of water, stick your headphones in, and get out there…

Enjoy!
