Jono RUNS THE WORLD
About my travel, my running & my life
THIS IS MY STORY
Hello, I'm Jonathan,
In a world that has finally begun to recover from the grip of the pandemic, I want to share my journey with you. A few years ago, I took on a simple challenge: completing my first 10km run. It was a step that led me on an incredible journey filled with exploration and personal growth.
Hailing from New Zealand, where the journey to anywhere else can be quite the endeavor, I've always had a fascination with distant lands. Despite the distances and costs, I've managed to explore 30 countries, soaking in the rich tapestry of cultures, sights, and sounds.
As I continued to explore, I began to merge my love for travel with my newfound passion for running. Along the way, I've completed marathons in a handful of these incredible places, including a memorable attempt at the UTMB CCC race, even if it didn't end as planned.
I'm not a professional athlete, nor do I hold any records. In fact, I'm just an average runner who decided to create this site to share my experiences of running and travel. My aim is to inspire others to step out of their comfort zones and embrace the world, whether that means running marathons in far-off lands or simply exploring new horizons.
Now, as the world begins to recover from the pandemic, my journey continues. I invite you to join me as I share my adventures, mishaps, and triumphs of running and traveling. Together, we'll explore the beauty of this planet one step at a time.
Welcome to my world of adventure and exploration.
