Under Crepuscular Skies

I got up early yesterday morning but instead of going out for my plan ned run I got caught up in the unfolding story from across the pond.

So it was up early again this morning. I donned my retro Ron Hill running gear including a pair vintage tracksters. It was not raining but there was a lot of surface water which indicated heavy overnight rain. I didn't see another soul just a few.passing cars. It started raining for the final kilometre.

It wasn't my best run nor my worse run. That may have been because of the weather, or last night's bell ringing, or the visit to the pub that followed that activity, or the sausage sandwich consumed afterwards to stave off the munchies. Or maybe a combination of all of those. But it was still a run.

Happy runnings.

  • Loving you title... Crepuscular rays.. one of my favourite sky- sights..:)

    Well done you... not easy to motivate oneself, especially after , as you say recent events...

    I remember those dark, wet mornings oh so well. :) Love your honesty too... balancing the fitness with our deserved treats :)

    Campanologist, sky-scanner, runner, and appreciator of the finer things in life...sounds good to me!:)

  • Very poetic title! Getting a touch of the Oldflossies there!

    I like the sound of bell ringing ( no pun intended).

  • Very good Ully x

  • " Crepuscular " - I had to Google that word, never heard of it ! What a brilliant word that is, I like it !

    Great post, and a bell ringer too - Fantastic ! :-) xxx

  • I only learned it a year or two ago and now use it at every opportunity.

  • Ha ha ! :-) xxx

  • Doesn't this say it all about how we keep running. It doesn't have to be our best run, or our worst run but it fits in with a range of other interests and it is still a run and thus still satisfying. Happy bell-ringing, sausage munching and running!

  • Great post. Sounds like a good run to me. I had a go at hand-bell ringing many years ago. I was fine when given the two little high bells at the top (didn't have to do too much ;) ) but then they gave me the two popular bells in the middle for a particular piece! Uh oh, seriously hard for the old brain to co-ordinate the music "do I ring the LH or the RH?" It was sometimes not such a good sound when I got the hands muddled up! Great fun though!
