W4R2 feat foxes 🦊

β€’4 Replies

I’m staying near Canary Wharf for business this week and am totally unfamiliar with the area so completed W4R1 on Sunday on the treadmill in the hotel gym.

Then I remembered why I hate treadmill running... it is SO BORING.

So this morning, after checking out the local area a bit yesterday evening, I set out along the Thames path at 6:40am, admiring the river and the scenery in the general peace and quiet that time of morning can bring even to this part of London. This was more like it!

Then, I spied a fox! Having grown up in London I had always viewed these urban foxes as total menaces, but having not seen one in 10 years since moving to Yorkshire, I guess my view has changed. This one was a beauty and just sat there watching me as I ran past - I couldn’t keep my eyes off it! A few minutes later and I spotted another! Again, a beautiful animal which looked healthy and quite happily watched me pass.

I certainly won’t be in a rush to use the treadmill again. Great run, still enjoying it and looking forward to my last London run on Thursday.

Nice! It's great being out and about when the rest of the human race is still asleep - you get to meet the rest of the animal kingdom πŸ˜€

How lovely! A great run and some foxy company! Sounds perfect! Enjoy your next one! 🦊 πŸ˜€


How wonderful Antondonkey. Running outside is where it's at and what a privilege to be able to share your morning with these beautiful animals.

Happy running.

That's lovely ! I love meeting foxes too, they're beautiful creatures. The ones around here are mostly unafraid and politely interested in humans passing by.

The husband and I will be spending one week in London in October, and your post really makes me look forward to running there. Thank you !
