Day 140 Mile 140: Conwy Rivers Project #2/10 – Afon Conwy. Today I headed out to Conwy to do the parkrun and to tick off another stage in the Conwy Rivers Project (see below for info) and maintain running at least a mile everyday for charity. As part of my warm-up I went around the town itself, taking in the castle and historic quay and getting to be a bit of a tourist taking photos from the battlements along the town walls.
Today it is raining, proper Welsh rain with big drops that soak you in seconds. In spite of this it is not too cold and the wind has died so as far as running goes once the initial shock is over it’s almost pleasant!
It’s great to run along the river with a big bunch of friends with a renewed appreciation of its geology and history having been delving into it. It helps to remind you to value the brief time we have.
On the flip side if anyone does want to go and verify that this is real if forgot my parkrun barcode today, so, even though I unofficially did my 2nd fastest ever time it probably won’t show on their website… bother!
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.
Distance: 5027.7 meters recorded
(1 mile = 1609.34 m.)
Thanks as ever for all the support!

P.S. 22/5/17 You know you get those days when it is really wet and nasty and you refuse to be overtaken by someone who is so overwhelmingly happy. Well that’s what it looks like! I’m pretty sure I didn’t mean to look that grumpy 🙂 Photo courtesy of SJ Photography.
