Sumatra, Indonesia offers up some unique running opportunities.
While on a surfing adventure, I was lucky enough to have a motivated fitness fanatic in Matt as company, who was dedicated to squeezing in a morning run between all day surfs.
Early morning runs included crunching along coral beaches, navigating narrow buffalo tracks through groves of coconut trees and jogging on hard packed trails adjacent to rice fields.
Humidity was high, even at dawn, and as we trotted through local villages, although always wonderfully friendly, I could see the locals thought the tourists doing burpees in the morning heat were a bit troppo!
Each run was followed by a salty shower of course..... :-)
