Juneathon2014 – Day 1 | Being contrary

Copyright (c) Ines Varela-Silva, 2014 ******************************** It has been a long time since my last post but, here I am again, on this bright day of 1 June 2014, fully committed to start the Juneathon 2014.  And what better way to start it if not by being contrary and challenge the very first rule? “RUN EVERY DAY” […]

The last day of Juneathon

Juneathon in Lisbon, Portugal – Day 6

This is a very short post today. I am in Lisbon. This is a walking/climbing day. I am walking around town to meet several colleagues and do some work and climbing 12 floors up and down the hotel room. That should account for something. Lisbon is gorgeous and it is a delight to just walk. […]
