Family Fun on the Narrabeen Lagoon Trail

Family Fun on the Narrabeen Lagoon Trail

Two years ago we left the sunny shores of South Africa, and with it our trusty mountain bikes. It was a sad day indeed. Thankfully, with our girls getting older, and quickly forming their own love for bikes, we decided it was time to bite the bullet and invest in a new set of mountain …

Fly Fishing Middle Harbour on a Hobie Outback

Fly Fishing Middle Harbour on a Hobie Outback

After a few still water, bass outings, I decided it was time to take my kayak out onto the harbour in search of some larger saltwater fish. My plan was to spend the early hours looking for pelagics, specifically kingfish, in deeper water, and then to hunt a few bream or flathead if the going …

Mosman Parkrun

Mosman Parkrun

Rather than a lazy Saturday start, we decided to kick off the weekend with a bang, by doing our first ever family parkrun. We headed down to Spit Reserve where the Mosman parkrun is held, with the girls sporting matching outfits. I wasn’t expecting a lot, predominantly because Mosman parkrun is a 3 lap, out …

The Sydney 7s

The Sydney 7s

My rugby (union) viewing, since having left South Africa, has been disappointing to say the least. I’ve watched snippets of the Sharks games on YouTube, but that’s where it ends. So when a mate asked us to join him at the Sydney 7s, we jumped at the offer. After roping in my cousin, we caught …

The 3 Falls Trail Run 2017

The 3 Falls Trail Run 2017

Having thoroughly enjoyed last year’s event, I did a great job in forgetting to register for the 2017 3 Falls Trail Run. Despite putting my name on the waiting list an entry never came my way. Thankfully I got a lucky break when a colleague was unable to run and passed his entry on to …

Running in Pune, India

Running in Pune, India

I’m currently in the enjoyable position of frequently travelling to India on business. While I spend 99% of my time in the office (or hotel), and therefore don’t get to see as much of India as I would like to, I do make every effort to get out and about as often as I can. And the best …

A JBL Reflect Mini BT (Sports) Headphone Review

A JBL Reflect Mini BT (Sports) Headphone Review

Most of the reviews I do are on venues, fly fishing tackle and photography gear. That said, I do do a fair bit of running and recently found a product which I love, so I thought I’d do a quick, more informal review of the JBL Reflect Mini BT (sports) headphones. I say informal because …

Wimbledon Parkrun in the Snow

Wimbledon Parkrun in the Snow

I was recently in the UK on business and met up with my sister for breakfast at Bill’s in Covent Garden. Now while Bill’s was a great breakfast venue, and the eggs Benedict were to die for, it was a relatively depressing morning for me – not because I was with my sister, that part …

My First Parkrun

My First Parkrun

For the past year I’ve heard story after story about just how fun parkruns are, and how they’re the latest craze sweeping the globe. I’d even gone so far as to sign up for them 6 months ago but was yet to actually take part in one, despite the Shongweni parkrun being less than 5kms from …

The 3 Falls Trail Run 2016

The 3 Falls Trail Run 2016

Despite living just minutes from Kloof Gorge (Krantzkloof Nature Reserve) it’s an area I haven’t explored (let alone run through) since I was a child. So when I saw this year’s 3 Falls Trail Run in the race calendar I knew it was an event I could not miss. Sadly however, by the time I got …
