I can now officially conclude that this has been the best holiday of my life. And there are lots of factors that go into that… The location was breathtaking. Every peak, twist and turn of the Catalonian countryside left me gasping in awe. The skies so clear, the sun so warm, the seas so blue and the landscapes so vivid. And in running I really felt like I saw parts of this wonderful place that even the locals don’t know exist… After so many weeks and months of trying – I really feel like I have found my stride.
