  • Long overdue report of FroggyDooda and MiniMoo’s adventure in the land of the never-setting sun:

    Above is Tromso island, the main part of the city, seen from the mainland. It is situated just over 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, which is why there is no night in summer and no light in winter. To give you an idea, the picture below was…[Read more]

      Midnight Sun Marathon 2019

      Nath is not quite with it yet, the celebratory Aquavit of last night plus the lack of sleep are not a good combo – a foresee a lot of coffee today!

      Maybe Midnight Rain Marathon would be more accurate here – my first thought was “I’m a domesticated frog, I don’t do rain” until my natural instinct kicked in -…[Read more]

    • Magic, well done to you both. Sounds like a toughie, especially in those conditions.

    • Well done both, in the relentless rain. Shame to miss the scenery

    • Haha – celebrations were done then 🤣🤣 sounds like tough conditions and what a shame to miss the views, good run though 😊😊

      terrific run in tough conditions. Well done Nathalie

    • wow brilliant run in not the best of conditions well done

    • Such an exciting marathon Nathalie, weather a bit wet but what an experience and a happy runner too. Well done 🙂
      Looking forward to seeing the pics 🙂

    • Wooooohoooooo!!! Wow! Fantastic run, Nath and a great report (as usual) FroggyDooda! 🙂 Huge congrats to both of you for the strength of mind and the determination (domesticated frog or not!). Lots of Aquavit is deserved! Superb race in tough conditions! 🙂

    • Great weather for frogs – lovely and moist brings out all the slugs – but maybe less ideal for any accompanying humans! Very well done Nathalie – a shame about the lack of views, but as you enjoyed it lots, that – and of course the big achievement – has to be very well worth while. That should certainly be a race to remember!

    • Sounds like you really enjoyed this one, shame about the weather, looking forward to your pics👍

    • Well done in the rain both, glad you still enjoyed it.

    • Well done in the rain both, glad you still enjoyed it.

    • Fab run in the conditions and think you had the right idea just to go out and enjoy it, not every run has to be a pb attempt and do find that sometimes chasing them takes the enjoyment out of a run.

    • Sounds like you really enjoyed that even with the rain. Very well done 👍😀🐸

    • Sorry Natalie I missed this post . Really pleased you enjoyed it more this time around even embraced the rain, shame but its one of few things we can’t control. Well done to both of you 👍😊

    • Nice bling 👍 well done 👍

      MSM W8-W1: Exploring Tromsø

      A lovely walk exploring Tromsø before Saturday. It was overcast when we arrived yesterday early in the afternoon, and it was very disorientating to realise that the intensity of the light hadn’t changed at all until we fell asleep around 11pm. Today is meant to be the only sunny day during the time we’re here, so w…[Read more]
