wish you were here...

i'd like to dedicate this fine john shuttleworth number to the other half of team marathon-schmarathon#2, who were stuck the other side of the hill today.

our choice was simple, a character building jog over bleaklow in whiteout conditions or a beautiful run along the edge. we chose to weave between the snow dusted grit stone boulders. you know it's been a good run when you have to add a little bit on the end, just for extra snow time. more pictures taken than miles trod but i think it might have been the most fun-est run of the year. a totally unexpected smile-a-thon, just a shame we didn't get to share it with everyone. days like today make you remember those early mornings pavement pounding are all worth it. happy running everyone.
