Out and About in Dubai

Posted on: 05 Dec 2014

By Louise (November 26th) ... On a Friday (my weekend is Friday and Saturday) I am normally up at 5am to run with the Creek Striders.  The runs are great and the people are even better.  I have seen more of Dubai on these runs that I have, driving around for 6 years; but today the alarm went off, I switched it off, turned over and went to ZZZZZZZZZZZ land.

At 8.00 I woke up and after much debating between head and heart decided I need to get out there and run and so I did.

My personal trainer joined me and as an ex Royal Marine PTI he is less than easy on me!!!!!!  We ran 20KM around Dubai through Satwa, along Jumeirah to the Creek, through the Souk (I saw a great pair of trousers I need to go back and haggle for!!) Along the Creek to Al Gahoud Bridge and to the Trade Center.  Three stops along the way to re-fuel (I know a vast range of location of petrol stations in Dubai if you ever need assistance!!!)  Then home for coffee on the roof of my apartment.  Not a bad way to spend my day off I am sure you will agree.
