Hi, I’m Ash Routen (Row-ten).

I’m a postdoctoral exercise scientist by day, and cold expedition adventurer (for want of a better term) and outdoors and health writer by night.

I’m based in Leicester in the UK, but I also spend considerable time in Cambridge where my partner lives.

To find out more about me, read my blog, take a look at my published writing, or visit my professional profile.
