Gym in Agadir

We found a decent gym in Agadir and had a tour of it yesterday. It is located in an area in Agadir called Founty. We walked to the south end of the beach promenade and up a wide road. It is a nice gym with equipment we can use and some interesting classes. Founty is …

Freedom

We are both finally getting over a nasty cold. Fortunately, the cold came in phases and Doug had it first so being a day behind him, it’s good to know that it will be get better. He is slowly getting better. It rained yesterday but just enough to wet the pavement, nothing more but the …

Running Again

We had a good run yesterday.  It felt good overall and had a lot of fun going from Les Houches up to Merlet then connect to Petit Balcon back down to Les Gaillands, by the lake.  It was a nice day!  The leaves and pines are starting to fall on the trails.  The mountain is …

Morocco Race

Our next trail run race is a 21km run in the mountains of Morocco.  It will be another new experience for us.  I am really excited because I read a lot of good things about trail running in Morocco.  We’ve booked our igloo tents in the resort where the race is at.  It is in …
