Fortune favours the runner in the fog!

Squeezed in my 6th consolidation run tonight in that ‘golden’ 30 minutes between sun set and it actually getting dark!

Ran on the moors to avoid the roads. Set off with no more than 15m visibility, cattle appeared from no where, sheep were nearly invisible but I knew my track so got my head down and had a great run, finished off with a big hill to kill the last 5 minutes and when I stopped and turned around to complete my walk cool down I raised my eyes to realise the fog had receded and left a beautiful scene of tors rising from pools of mist, if I had any breath left it would have taken it away.

To me this is the absolute joy of running, getting out and seeing something that perhaps for a moment you are the only person to see (same could be said for walking of course)

Worth the blister from a new insole set up!

Keep on keeping on!

What a run rancher!! 🤩🤩🤩! Amazing photo! I can certainly relate to those moments of the ultimate and absolute pleasure of being alone with a view that feels like you’ve had a glimpse of heaven and so grateful to have had the chance for your eyes to see. 😍 Well done you!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽❤️
