Day 45 mile 45: Blown away on Valentine’s Day. It’s a beautiful day today, but it is REALLY windy, again. Having the opportunity to get out in daylight, I took myself up to the Jubilee Path, high up in the mountains overlooking the sea. It’s about as exposed as it’s going to get, but it is outstandingly beautiful. The sun is beaming through a slightly hazy sky and hightening the palette of mountains. The ochres of mud and rock permeate in stark contrast to the verdant grass, psychedelic lichens and russet of the dormant heather. The wind is coming from roughly the southwest, thus, down the slope resulting in a hard slog up, where it is difficult to walk or stand before even starting running. However this is more than rewarded on the way back down.
It’s crazy, beautiful and oddly peaceful in the midst of the maelstrom.
Take care all!
I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me please do, as 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.
