.WHAT RACE ARE YOU RUNNING?RUNNING THE RACE OF ADVENTURE

printer barista
“What do you do?” is a common question one asks when one meets someone for the first time. My answer to these types of questions usually depends on one’s knowledge or appreciation of what it means to be a tradesman. Printing and brewing coffee are extremely similar – two trades I have been privileged to learn and glean from in my journey. This Tale...
Grootvadersbosch low-down – 8 July 2018
The photographs we post are untouched and unedited. Yet they are still limited. Limited because even edited photographs are unable to tell the true Tales behind them. Every one of us has Tales behind us to be told, yet how edited are they? This Tale is posted during a particular low-down for Joseph. Unable to run due to an injury, Lisa enjoys the s...
Run Wind Park
We do not know where wind comes from, yet stewarding its effect principally brings about our fascination. Using what we have, whatever that might be – even the ability to just run together however that might look, is what this Tale is about. The Yzerfontein parkrun highlighted this simple privileged reality. “The wind blows where it wishes, an...
Ocean2Ocean 50 km Trail Run – 28 April 2018
One of the best things for us when we run trails is the awareness of the realness of our lives. The Two Oceans is a popular run in Cape Town, yet the Ocean2Ocean was previously known as the real 2 Oceans! Perhaps because it’s a trail run that traverses over Table Mountain instead around it. Maybe. Maybe, because comparisons are a curse in that we d...
Journal: Jesus Trail
Consider yourself privileged if you are reading this. That’s how we felt traversing the foothills in the footprints of Jesus. Perceptions we had about the land going into this trail were soon changed. We could only but be silenced by this experience as we made our way along this route of Jesus from his hometown Nazareth, to Capernaum, his main area...
Cape Town Cycle Tour 109 km via BMX – 11 March 2018
58 kilometres per hour/36 miles per hour. That was my top speed while traversing the 109 km Cape Town Cycle Tour on a single speed BMX. Like trail running, I just feel really good and free riding a BMX. It’s simply fun, and I could not resist riding the world’s largest timed cycle race without anything else. This Tale depicts these highs and some l...
Coffee, science?
Some of our supporters of relational artisan coffee think coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world after oil. Not all things are seemingly what they seem to be simply because no matter which way we look at that thing, numbers, facts and figures cannot and do not tell the full story. Is it science? There’s more to a cup...
Hangklip
Resembling a hanging mountain, its peak precariously points towards its mirrored counterpart on the opposite side of False Bay. Enjoying Hangklip looked too good to skip and so we took a few hours to enjoy this day hike together. It was one of those magnificent, simple days doing what we like to do. Enjoy this Tale! The trail passes through the res...
Ultra-Trail Cape Town 35 km – 2 December 2017
It was that usual butterflies-in-the-stomach moment as we made our way to the start line of this iconic event. Perhaps it was the hype around this anticipated day or maybe it was the slight trepidation that’s typical of a new event one just isn’t sure how will pan out. Maybe it was these factors, but it was also the mountain, 2000 metres ...
Summit Playground
Insignificant. That’s how we sometimes feel when we stand atop a mountain summit and look at the expanse below. Often this comes from simply recognising how small we really are in relation to the world around us because of the new perspective the summit view has afforded us. In reality though, this could not be more further from the truth. We, you ...
Trailblazer Trailer – Travel
Hits – it’s what a post like this gets a lot of simply because the word ‘travel’ exists in its title. While travel is brilliant and we all desire so much more of it, the more we get the more it never quite satisfies this zeal inside of us. This Tale is about Trailblazer Trailer, specialising in relational artisan coffee doing what it does best – tr...
Free Running
What is it like to run free? To run and run and never be held back? These questions could be answered with the question: “what would it feel like to be restricted from being free?” These dichotomous questions could be somewhat of misnomers because what we distinguish as being restricted is freedom to others… This post tells our Tale about Free Runn...
