  • Kijabe, Kenya


One of the best parts of living in Kijabe is access to the outdoors. I know a handful of runs and rides have happened on trips back to America or in passing through Europe, but Strava says I’ve ridden 3000 miles, run 785, and climbed around 600,000 feet in elevation since we’ve moved to Kenya. The Strava heat map that shows the paths that my friends and I have taken in the past years.

Circles are Moffat field (super bright) and upper/lower field at RVA.
