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!
Extremeness: Technical single track, wind and trees
Location: Paradyskloof, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Cobus Potgieter, Pieter van Heerden & me
Two things distinguished this jog from the Friday regular: (1) we were joined by SuperPiet, and (2) there were fallen trees everywhere. The wind of the last couple of days in Stellenbosch made our route a lot more exciting, while the summer heat scorched when we did not run in the forest.
Superpiet - is that sun coming from his shirt?
