Day 85 mile 85: Mother’s & St. Castulus’ Day. Ok first off, Happy Mother’s Day to all Mums out there; and to all those who have battled to remember it’s today, I hope the day works out for you too! Today is also the feast day of St. Castulus, a slightly obscure figure who is often invoked against the possibly of lightning-strike, wild fire and horse rustling.
As a result it seemed to make sense to run up to the pinnacle of one of the taller isolated peaks around here, one that also caught fire last year, looks like a brilliant natural lightning conductor and has its own population of wild ponies.
Surely that must make it the safest day of the year?
It’s beautiful up here, the trails are drying up making getting up more efficient and down less death inducing. There is a yellowish early morning light and the jackdaws are reeling in the stiff breeze that comes off the sea and up the valley before stalling on the sides of the mountain and being forced upwards.
Getting back to the road it’s nice to see a few cars pulling up with people out to enjoy the day 🙂
Thanks for all the support as ever!
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.
