Day 37 mile 37: It’s a long way to Jupiter. It’s early, and I’m awake. This week is going to be busy anyway, with a mix of all sorts of commitments, so rather than lounge in bed listening to the shipping forecast getting up and getting today’s mile done seemed like a good idea.
Keeping things local I ran out through the village and down the hill towards the station avoiding the occasional commuter and curious black cat. The eye-shine on from the light of my head-torch both leads to a similarly shocked expression, with the mother-of-pearl illuminations pin-pricking out of the gloom
The crux of the route is as it turns up from the station up Paradise Road and back towards the high street. I don’t know why it was named Paradise Road, perhaps it was due to being the way down to the Prom and the beach. One thing I am pretty sure about, they didn’t name it ‘Paradise’ when they were going up it!
This morning retains last night’s lack of cloud, with the pre-dawn light radiating blue and yellows though the western sky behind the silhouette of the headland. As a result the stars have already washed out in the navy blue/black, all except for Jupiter glowing away over the roofs of the high street directly in line with the run up the hill… Now there is a target to aim for, head up and keep running. Gosh it felt hard work this morning!
I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me, all the money raised will go to the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it.
Here’s some music to blast hills with 🙂
