Day 328 Mile 328: Going For A Run with Emma. Today is a rare chance to go for a run with the wonderful Emma. As someone who has tolerated my particular brand of madness for over ten years with good nature and stoicism in equal measure it is a real privilege to join her on her run around Llandudno this evening.
It is almost dusk, and dark by the time we get back. While for the most part the roads are well lit a certain section of the route had to curtailed due to a really overcast evening (which DID NOT rain!) and lack of lighting/head torches. It was really great to go up from the town with its early Christmas lights, through the steep backstreets of the south side of the Great Orme and into the crepuscular confines of Happy Valley with its ornamental gardens and crazy Alice in Wonderland statues transfiguring through the gloom.
Following a descent where I got overexcited and went off completely the wrong way down hill, resulting in much shouting from behind and a subsequent retracing of steps back up the gradient we finished back in the town, among the shop fronts and people, no illuminated by neon lights.
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.
