Running blog: I don’t know how I’m still going!

Our Social Media and Marketing Co-ordinator, Helen, took up running in October 2018. She’s written a starting blog for us here, let’s catch up with how she’s doing!   The last time I left you with a running update, I was just about to start running home from work at the FINDRA Stockbridge shop. It…

Recovery with coffee

Recovery Essentials and Tips

It’s one of the little ironies of life that by the time we truly appreciate our health and what our body is capable of on the trails, be that walking, running or cycling, we’re also becoming increasingly aware of its perceived limitations. Thankfully we don’t have to look far for reassurance that all is not…

Whether your year has felt like you’ve been constantly hiking uphill, downhill or across a desert one thing is for sure: in all circumstances being kind to others benefits the world around you.

Customer Adventure: Climbing the Via Ferrata, Italy

We love to hear about the adventures our customers embark upon. So when Vickie Morrison sent us a photo of the Italian Mountains, we just had to know more! Hey Vickie!

Shopping Local on Small Business Saturday

The beginning of December is a strange limbo time, much like the week between Boxing Day and New Years Eve. The Black Friday sales are over, and most people are waiting for Christmas… and the sales which come in the new year. Our founder, Alex, recently wrote a piece on why we don’t take part…

My Journey Into Adventure

It’s almost inevitable that when having a conversation about the adventures that I’ve been on or am planning, the person I’m talking to will ask “how did you end up doing this?” It’s a very reasonable question to ask, and one I find myself asking other people regularly as well. I like to hear people’s…

Running the OMM, 2018

Tussocks. I hate tussocks. Lumps of grass the size of a football, or a baby’s head, strewn across the otherwise featureless fellside. You can try and hop from the top of one to the next, but they are unstable and give under each footfall, sending you off in odd directions. Try and step around them,…

Happy Journey

Running blog: The hardest part is starting.

A lot of people I speak to find it difficult to fit regular exercise into their routine and with rising costs in public and private modes of transport, active commuting is an avenue worth exploring if you’re able to. Even if it’s getting off the train a stop or two earlier and walking or running…

FINDRA Blog Post

Active recovery: cycling through depression. 

“Part of me just wants to get to Melbourne, get on a plane and go home.” “Well it’s still 2,200km of cycling to get there.” I tried to offer up some kind of encouragement through my tears. Mike had hit rock bottom as we arrived at the Moodini Bluff rest area 25km east of the…
