Day 16 done. Over halfway!
I was fooled by the dry streets in the town and nearly went over twice when I got onto the country roads. I was running at walking pace along the rough edge of the road for much of the run to avoid almost invisible stretches of thin ice.
But a glorious morning along the roof of the world. The earth energies are rising as we approach the Solstice and there is a strong sense of connection with the land. Part of this route goes along what must be an ancient footpath over a field - I say ancient because there is a tangible feel of feet crossing it going back over the centuries. Sometimes when I run it, I go into what I can only describe as a zen like feeling that I’m one with the landscape, and that happened today.
How blessed I am to be doing this challenge. It’s motivated and inspired me so much. It’s my first Marcothon but it won’t be my last.
Onwards and upwards.
