An Accra (Ghana, Africa) Runaround

I’m just about to board my flight back to London after 48 hours here in Accra, Ghana.  I was down here for a smattering of work meetings over the past two days.  As a super-quick African geography refresher, here’s where … Read More Here


An Esbjerg (Denmark) Runaround

The Runaround: It’s been a while since my last runaround.  Not because I haven’t been running around random cities across the globe, but just because with so much other stuff to post about, they’ve gotten slightly overrun. But here’s a … Read More Here


A Doha (Qatar) Nighttime Runaround

I landed in Qatar rather late Sunday night, about 11:30PM or so, making it roughly 12:30AM by time I got to the hotel.  For the super-quick geography reminder, here’s where Doha is: With work meetings taking up most of the … Read More Here


A Bahrain Run & Swim Brickaround

The last 48 hours I’ve been in Bahrain, a tiny little island country in the Middle East that floats to the east of Saudi Arabia.  So close in fact that when I’m on work trips to Saudi, I often just … Read More Here


A Roodepoort, South Africa Runaround

I arrived yesterday morning into Johannesburg around 7:30AM after an 11 hour flight from London.  While I thought I might run in the afternoon following a day of meetings, my body was apparently able to rather successfully get rid of … Read More Here


A London Weekend Runaround

Two quick reminders: First, the Giveaway Closes at the end of today, get your entries in!  And second, if you’re in/around Paris this weekend, remember the DCR Open House is coming up on Saturday, along with the Santa 10K on … Read More Here


A Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) Runaround

After my meetings finished on Sunday, a run was in order.  Now ideally I would have done said run at 6AM on Sunday, well before my meetings.  But when my alarm went off there was lot of snooze button pushing and … Read More Here


An Apeldoorn (Netherlands) Runaround

Once again this week I had to actually look at a map to figure out where on earth I was being sent for work.  The last time was when I went to Xi’an, China.  Sometimes I’ve heard of the city … Read More Here

Mexico City Runaround

Mexico City, 7:08PM: I sit here now in a cab, stuck in barely crawling traffic in the dark, hoping to make it to the airport in time for my flight.  The check-in cutoff time is 37 minutes from now, and … Read More Here


A Cardiff (Wales) Runaround

Last Thursday I had a quick day trip up to Cardiff for some work meetings.  Of course, it was somewhat a bit of a near-disaster in that I didn’t realize I was going to Cardiff until about 14 hours before … Read More Here

A Frozen Sea Helsinki Finland Runaround

I left the lovely British countryside behind (and by lovely, I mean cold and raining) and boarded a nearly three hour flight from London Heathrow to Helsinki, Finland.  I always forget just how far that is from the rest of … Read More Here

A Rio de Janeiro Runaround

I arrived into Sao Paulo, Brazil early on Thursday morning, directly from Europe.  With meetings on Thursday and Friday taking up all daylight hours, I didn’t see much of Sao Paulo by time I was back at the airport Friday … Read More Here


A Thanksgiving Kiev (Ukraine) Runaround

I found myself on Thanksgiving Eve cruising east towards Kiev, Ukraine – for meetings on Thanksgiving in the capital city.  The plane was pretty much empty, and in an ironic twist, the airplane food that was served was actually turkey.  … Read More Here

A Mexico to Israel via London Layover Airport Interval Runaround

To start, let’s just recap the last two days. Or at least, I think it’s been two days: Sunday 10AM France Time: Departed, connected in London, flew to Mexico City. Sunday 6:45PM Mexico Time: Landed in Mexico City after 11hrs … Read More Here


A Dortmund (Germany) Runaround

While last week I was in beautiful sunny Greece, today…I am not. Instead, I’m in Dortmund, Germany.  Which – may very well be a very nice sunny place too on some days.  Regrettably, today was not one of those days. … Read More Here

The Paine Field Runaround

I’ve been heads down the last few days concurrently writing a bunch of upcoming reviews for the next few weeks – so we’ll keep today’s post somewhat short so I can go back into the abyss of processing photos and … Read More Here

A Kananaskis Moose Runaround

As many of you know, Wednesday and Thursday of last week I was in Kananaskis, Alberta (Canada) for the ANT+ Symposium where I delivered my annual keynote session on the state of sports technology.  While you’ll see a handful of … Read More Here


A Prague, Czech Republic Runaround

The past two days I’ve been here in the city of Prague, which is located in the Czech Republic.  While I’ve been largely inside in a windowless conference room, I did briefly get to go outside during daylight hours and … Read More Here

A Queen Mary 2 Runaround

The past few days we’ve been floating along on a rather large boat. Technically more of an ocean liner, but still, it did float. The Queen Mary 2. Yes, a long lost but still rather close relative of the Titanic. … Read More Here


A Philadelphia Runaround

You know what’s nice about this run in Philadelphia?  I didn’t have to run a marathon.  It seems the trend that every time I’m in Philly I’m either running the Philly Marathon/Half-Marathon, or doing the Philly Triathlon.  This time, I … Read More Here


The Amsterdam Runaround

As a general rule for Runarounds, they tend to run…well…around something.  Usually that’s a city.  In most cases I start at the hotel and then make a big loop back to my starting point.  In some occasions (such as in … Read More Here

A New York City Runaround

I flew out to New York late Tuesday night, only in town for a little under 48 hours – just enough for a full slate of work meetings. I ended up swimming on Wednesday at a place just a few … Read More Here

The Xi’an China Runaround

It’s funny to think that prior to booking my airline ticket to this city, I’d never heard of it.  In fact, I can’t think of the last time I booked any travel to a place I didn’t know existed.  I’ve … Read More Here


A London Runaround

After finishing up a day of meetings a little after 6PM, I zipped back to the hotel via two different trains in the London Underground (subway system).  While light was slowly fading, I was able to make record time in … Read More Here


An Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia Runaround

I arrived in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Monday evening for two days of meetings.  I had flown first to Bahrain, and then drove across the causeway that connects the two countries.  The actual driving portion of the journey probably … Read More Here
