Day 317 Mile 317: Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

Day 317 Mile 317: Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside. Today finds me back in North Wales beside the sea. It is nice to be back. There is something wonderfully focused about the line of sight of the coastline around here. There seems to be a definite ‘correct’ way to view it, with the mountains to your back surveying the sea. To sit cross legged facing uphill would just feel odd come to think of it!

In-spite of being far further north than I was yesterday, the air feels warmer. There is a dusted caster-sugar areola of snow on the peaks of the mountains to the south, but the gulf stream curving its way across the Atlantic combined with the heady sea air is thus far repelling any chance of frost at lower levels.

Apart from this today’s run was relatively uneventful, if you exclude the standard Monday fayre of avoiding the recycling boxes, along with almost tripping over a black and white cat, a new PB running back up the hill, and finding that a branch has washed up on the tide line.

It’s all very pretty and pleasant… and warmer!

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: 1709.1 meters recorded

(1 mile = 1609.34 m.)

Oddly appropriate and inappropriate earwom for today!
