Once upon a time, before trail running, before Parkour, we hiked up various mountains in South Africa and ran down like crazy people… we called it Extreme Jogging. This blog is a tribute to the good old days, friends & family, my Creator and everybody that love running in nature!
This was Riana's first extreme jog without Adriaan, and we could not really ask for more beautiful scenery. We jogged from my parents' house in Denneoord in the direction of the Garden Route Dam. Initially we jogged on non-technical gravel road, but as soon as we approached the dam the road was overgrown with long grass. Given the rain of the last couple of days there were many puddles of mud and everything seemed fresh with the typical George wet and moist smell. Riana skipped and jump with high knees between the grass... giggling like a little girl! The views of the Garden Route Dam was really spectacular and as we turned home we were greeted by an awesome sunset.

Beautiful... Riana and Erica fynbos

More tall grass... more skipping
