This summer I will have been living the international teacher life for 10 years and am now in the lucky position that I can afford to take some time out and give something back. Vietnam has hosted me for the last 4 years and I have loved every moment. The food, the crazy streets, the kind, generous people and even the rats have made my time here beyond wonderful.

About 6 months ago I decided I wanted to be a runner. I’ve been into fitness for a few years but never considered myself a runner, in fact I actively avoided it. So what better way to become a runner than to run over 2000km. The plan is set, I will run from Hanoi to HCMC over of course of 6 months on behalf of charities that support children’s education and women’s health.
