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

A Dublin Runaround

When I heard that I’d be going to Dublin about 40 hours after arriving back from nice sunny…warm…sunny…warm…did I mention sunny…Australia, there weren’t many positive thoughts in my head.  There’s nothing wrong with Dublin – it’s just that (like my … Read More Here

A Sydney Swim, Bike and Runaround

I started working my way back home from New Zealand yesterday morning.  Due to the way my airline ticket was, I ended up having a roughly 30 hour layover in Sydney.  So I was determined to take advantage of it.  … Read More Here

A Wellington (New Zealand) Runaround

Yesterday I spent just a touch over 24 hours in Wellington, New Zealand. After landing into Auckland at 4:45AM from Perth (a miserable time for a redeye flight by the way), I then had a quick connection down to Wellington … Read More Here

A Rottnest Island Runaround (Western Australia)

I arrived here in Perth, Australia nearly a week ago – and things have been a wee bit busy since then.  As I noted what seems like ages ago, I’m in the midst of a two-week trip down here to … Read More Here

A Stockholm (Sweden) Runaround

I’ve been in Stockholm for work meetings since very late Sunday night (actually, technically, Monday morning).  My schedule had a 2hr 20min run on the docket, with the flexibility to place that either on Monday or Tuesday, depending on what … Read More Here

An Istanbul Runaround

While I’ve flown through Istanbul a number of times this year, this would actually be my first trip where I didn’t make an onwards connecting flight.  Albeit true, I was only here about 30 hours.  Still, in between my meetings … Read More Here

A Vienna Runaround

This was the runaround that almost wasn’t.  But thankfully, the calendar gods parted just enough to squeeze in a run…but only barely. I arrived into Vienna late last night (Wednesday night), and was just here for a couple of meetings … Read More Here

A Kochi, India Runaround

Welcome to India, the land of a billion people, nearly as many bikes, and countless interesting places to run.  Despite having flown over India more times than I can remember in the past two years, it’s been almost exactly two … Read More Here
