Runs of Old

I was going through the files from my old website tonight and I found a folder called snowdon and found that it contained pictures of my run up Mount Snowdon in June 2009. This was the expedition when my sister, brother-in-law and their friends took part in the 3 Peaks Challenge and needed a driver to take them on the epic 24 hour journey...I was that driver. My present (as it was my birthday that month) was to to get them to Snowdon and then be "allowed" to be cut loose to run to the top 1,085 m (3,560 ft)  above sea level...between you and me I did start ~1,000 feet asl but who's counting ;-)

Anyways, I ran, climbed and clambered up the mountain and got to the top feeling very proud of myself having only slept 4 of the past 28 hours

 I then stopped off for a cornish pasty and a cup of coffee to return back to the base camp in half the time it took to climb. Just off the peak I stopped at the junction of Pyg's and Miner's to take this picture.

Head in the clouds
Now ask me why I love my long distance running.
