about me

My name is Stephen. Welcome to my blog.

By day I work in the exciting world of SaaS. But EARLIER in the day, I'm out running, wherever I happen to be. I might be running around the Eiffel tower before a client meeting in Paris, exploring the streets of Rome on a family holiday, or running around my neighbourhood in London.

One of the best things about being a frequent traveller and a runner is getting to explore new places - but one of the worst is trying to figure out where to go and what routes to run. I hope this blog helps your feet find a good route the next time you're away from home.
