Boff Whalley just likes running - the places it takes him, the moments of exhilaration and snapshots of natural beauty that he adds to his mental album.
This is not a man who signs up to big city marathons and pounds the pavements.
With his down to earth voice and a great sense of humour, Boff writes about how running brings a real world of discovery and adventure, from reaching the top of a mountain with the sun at your back and moon in front creating two shadows to running up Mt Fuji on a break from work.
For Boff, running is about freedom, experiencing of the world, your place in it and generally just enjoying yourself.
Running is a way to get back to that simplest of relationships - the one between our feet and the earth.
