Vanessa found herself in a position to take some time out and do as she pleased, so grasping that opportunity, decide to go around the world and drink in what there is to see, but does it via her own route.

Taking in as many OCR, endurance and running events as she can, she can be found anywhere from on the Great Wall of China, to the mountains of southern California.
