Run to the hills

After training hard over the summer for local races including the International Snowdon Race, the Snowdonia Marathon and running for triathlon teams in Always Aim High’s Slateman, Sandman and Snowman – it’s always hard (I find) to keep the momentum going over the winter period.  Throw in a trip to Everest Base Camp and some interesting viral  infections since, running 26 miles for the marathon in October seems a very long way away!  But, to get out and check what the snowline is doing is a great motivator and this morning’s little trot up the Miners Path afforded some pleasing views (despite my legs feeling like sacks of spuds…thank you mystery virus).  We hear people were climbing on Trinity Face today and I saw a couple heading up to Cwm Glas early this morning.  We’re currently checking local reports to see what may be good for an outing tomorrow…suck it and see seems to be the general tone of things!

Early soft light on slate climbing mecca that is Dinorwig Quarries, Elidir Fawr, Snowdonia.  Winter blue and autumnal orange mix.  Many films have been shot on location here and from this picture you can see why.
