10 + Miles πŸ€ͺ and Eddie the Eagle πŸ¦…

β€’17 Replies

Not been out for a run all week so I was chomping at the bit to get out this morning!

Last week I did something I've never done before where my husband dropped me off in no man's land and I ran all the way home! That was fun! 😊... Today I did something else I've never done before and that is walk out the front door and start running! I know! Nothing unusual there for most people πŸ˜‚ But the plan today was to run from my house and up into the hills. Then when I felt like I'd had enough I could ring my husband to come and pick me up 😊 Well that was the plan! But as you know not everything always goes to plan πŸ™„

So there I am happily running, not quite sure how far I'd gone but that wasn't an issue... Running, running, running! Looked up, OMG! There's an Eagle! Just hovering about 10ft above my head! Quick! Get the phone out! Took a quick photo and then he swooped off and down the hill! As I carried on I saw 2 more! Well I think they were eagles? Please correct me if I'm wrong πŸ€”

Anyway... I'd got to the point where I thought I'd run a fair distance but didn't want to run much further as I'd not run all week, so phoned my husband for a lift home πŸ“± NO SIGNAL! Oooops! Forgot about that! Oh well, I'll just turn around and run the same way back and if I get tired I'll ring him again. The way home is pretty much all down hill so I managed to run all the way home.

Husband : You weren't out very long! Are you ok?

Me : I feel great! Couldn't get a signal to call you. I saw an Eagle (and burst into tears... again!)

What is wrong with me!? Maybe running the longest distance I've ever run and seeing and Eagle may have had some bearing on it πŸ˜‚ 17.95k! That's over 10 Miles! And the time was....91 minutes! ☺️πŸ€ͺ😱

Off to see my son play in 2 concerts tomorrow! Haven't seen him since going back to uni in September! πŸ₯°

Have a fab weekend everyone! xxxx

What an amazing couple of runs you’ve had, I was wondering what was going to go wrong though - oops, signals in hills not good. Amazing distance, great speed.

Thank you Grannyhugs ❀️ I feel quite good in the leg department, which is a suprise, maybe I'll feel it tomorrow! Still a bit emotional as I'm baking a cake πŸ˜‚ x

Enjoy that cake you deserve it


Wow! That’s a great Running story, and seeing eagles too. That’s special. Sometimes I feel the universe just comes together for me when I’m out running, hard to explain but it can be emotional, completely understood x

Enjoy the rest of your weekend 😊

Good run for you today AliHC, eagles, no Mobile phone signal, sounds like you live in the remoter parts of North West Scotland. 😊 πŸƒπŸΎ

☺️ It's sometimes hard to believe that this is still in Sheffield isn't it!

It was really warm today too!

Hope you're well AlMorr x

Sheffield, the home of snooker, yes, thanks ALIHC, I am very well.


Your really building up the miles AliHC. What a beautiful bird photo and hope you enjoy your concert and seeing your son.

Thank you Buddy34 ❀️

So excited to see him and hear him play again! xxx


Whoosh! An amazing run. πŸŽ‰ And beautiful photo too. πŸ‘πŸΌ A complete triumph - I was going to say β€œexcept for the phone signal”, but then that led to the fab run distance. So no exceptions at all. A fabulous run. πŸ‘πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰


Thank you Granspeed ❀️

A great experience! X


Amazing run, I am in awe of you being able to run so far! I think that the bird is a Red Kite, you did well to get such a good photo of it, they are very fast and agile flyers as well as being very beautiful!

Wow Ali, what a great run and how wonderful to see eagles. Stunning photo. I’m not surprised you felt emotional. Your progress has been stratospheric and inspiring. Enjoy the concerts and time with your son. I saw mine today for the first time in s few months. The hug will keep me going for a while - or at least until I see him tomorrow. X
