Julia Jones: Looking for cooler places to run

For someone who loves running so much, I chose one of the worst places in Italy to live in. From October until April the running is fine. We have a “normal” winter, sometimes with snow, justifying a separate running wardrobe for when the thermometer drops below freezing. There’s plenty of running space with a variety of trails. For a change of landscape there are nearby hills to strengthen muscles and an increased heart beat . The big problem is right now, in the middle of the summer, which in the twenty-first century seems to last several weeks more each year. It starts out with a heat ...

Julia Jones: Marathon preparation starts here

If you’ve been clicking on our Venicemarathon website page and mulling it around in your mind for the past few months whether to sign up or not, now is the time to make that decision. It’s an important decision, not for the event in itself as much as the time and energy that you’ll be putting into preparing yourself to run forty-two kilometres.   You’ll need approximately four months, four days per week with fifty to sixty kilometres of weekly mileage volume. It takes time, it takes energy and it takes commitment. Of those three the commitment is the most important ...

Julia Jones: Summer Running

On Sunday I went to a non-competitive race put on by a sports group in my neighbourhood. They’ve been organising it since I’ve lived in this particular house, over twenty years. It’s a small event with just the right amount of people. The only let down is the start time: 6:00 p.m. on a hot summer afternoon. “Suffer” is the word that comes to mind when I think of summer running. As I’ve gotten older I seem to tolerate the heat and humidity even less. Okay, I’m not even really a fan of dry heat either! I'd rather run during a snowstorm in December than in the torrential July sun. ...

Venice: the bridges of the City

The historic center of Venice includes 121 islands which are connected to the mainland thanks to 435 bridges. There are several bridges in the city: along the Grand Canal (including the world-famous Rialto Bridge), in Cannaregio, in San Marco (such as the Bridge of Sighs), in Giudecca, in Murano, Burano and Torcello. All of these bridges are made with wood, iron or stone and some of them are private property, so they can’t be visited. Moreover, because of their historic, artistic and architectural importance, they really deserve a little tour. Who participated in the Venice Marathon at ...
