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, night running and rain
Location: Coetzenburg, Paradyskloof, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Only me
Today I had a fairly diverse jog. I started from the suspension bridge, up towards the abandoned hiking hut. I then cut across towards Paradykloof and joined up with the "Friday Regular" trail single tracks. At this stage I accidentally stopped my Endomondo and had to start it again. I completed the loop and by the time I hit the most technical part of the single track it was dark. I started to run with my head light and decided to take a photo. Note to oneself: do not flash yourself straight in the face before doing a super technical single track at night! I made it down the mountain in one piece and then it started to rain hard. What a nice way to finish a fairly tough extreme jog.
