Day 249 Mile 249: Sunrise Over the Mountain. This morning I put the kettle on and went for a quick run out of the end of the village and out around the headland. After the rain of yesterday the sky has cleared, leaving only a strong breeze from the west. There is a piece of local weather lore that holds with the concept that bad weather in North America takes about ten days to echo across the Atlantic and turn up as poor conditions (although with less energy) on these shores. Given the weather of the last few days there may be a grain of truth in it!
So I set out, running into the wind and feeling a bit slow, and a chance moment of looking over my shoulder gave the opportunity to see the sun rising over the mountain. Not much else of note happened today, apart from waving to a neighbor as he rode his bicycle to work and experiencing the joy of running back home with the wind behind me. Sometimes it’s nice just to chill a bit!
The novelty of running a mile first thing in the morning; to come back home to a pre-boiled kettle has not yet worn thin 🙂
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.
