From across the Pennines...
and down Greengate. At this point, the looooong road ahead of me and the snow beneath my feet, makes me wonder about my song choice!
Mile 5: I run up yet another looong, straight, road:
Mile 6: and I'm on the home straight. Back on Moston Lane, back past 'Tan-ya's' hide tanning business, back listening to Ben Folds (Zack and Sara have joined me now), and I notice that the local park is looking... what's that?... looking decidedly picturesque! Perfect.
Diane of course deserves an even bigger, belting pat on the back. I ran 10k today; she ran her 190th kilometre in just 19 days. I found the running tough: tough on my legs, tough on my feet and tough because it was so cold; add to that the mental toughness of forcing myself out the door for the 19th day on the run (no pun intended... but quite good all the same!) and I'm not sure I would have achieved it.
Diane, on the other hand did, and you can read about her run (with me!) here.
Distance: 6.2 miles (10k)
Weather: Full of snow and -6 degrees!
Feeling: Motivated by my friend
