Just before heading out on a long Sunday morning run, I received this lovely guest blog from our old intern Silvana. It put a big smile on my face and a bold bounce in my step as I dodged the canal-side crowds, helping me to knock off my longest ever run.
I hope it has a similar effect on you. Continue reading
