The Grim Runner

NVA’s Creative Director Angus Farquhar has been a runner for 13 years. His own experiences of training for a marathon led him to question why he ran and put his thoughts onto paper for his 2009 book, The Speed of Light.

“The feeling of being up and out on your own, with only two or three people passed on the whole hill run, of the previously unknown becoming part of your extending knowledge of your surroundings, is special and makes the world a richer place.”

In the year leading up to Speed of Light Edinburgh, Angus wrote a log documenting the highs; the lows; achievements and challenges. The story continues to Japan and new horizons for Speed of Light in 2013. You can read it here.
