I’ve been trying to ignore the buzz about ultra running training camps for a long time now. Frankly, I’d love to go to one but finances, baby-rearing, and an inability to sneak away for 3-7 days have been the limiting factors. But when I think about it, they combine my favorite two things: running and travel. Two birds. One stone.
I’m checking in with you all from the southern coast of Portugal. Nikki, Dash, and I just finished our Tour de U.K. in the camper van and are now unwinding for a few days on the beach before we return to the good ole U. S. of A.
We went into this trip with very little running-specific information. I’m sure it’s out there but we just winged most of our runs/hikes. So this is an effort to show all you runners out there what is available should you venture to the land of redcoats and kilts.
