This morning I ran with Regents… a road running club in Durban. Needless to say, a stark departure from the Tori of old, seeing as only since being in Durbs have I actually started to run sociably as opposed to my time in Dubai. There, I loved nothing more than spending hours alone with my […]

My name is Tori & I’m an addict

July 12, 2013


I interviewed a climber yesterday for a feature I’m writing and he talked of the addictive nature of his sport. I nodded and found a smile creep up on me as I thought about the addictive nature of running. But then, doesn’t the word ‘addict’ tend to conjure up a sense of negativity, of harmful […]

This morning I peeled myself out of bed a little after five am.  The excitement post puppy viewing last night had kept me up late! But I’d arranged a running date with Fiona and had a 40-minute run to reach our meeting point in the marina. But half six came and went and no sign […]
