Cudmore Grove - me at 9 miles and Dad on the buttons II, a photo by ultraBobban on Flickr.
I've had a nice end to a very busy week with a hard 7 repetitive hills on Friday night, a fantastic 7 with Mrs UB and Lily on Saturday morning, all XC around Beckenham and then a drive up to mum and dad's for the man himself and his 69th birthday. A big fat evening on the Island can only be followed by a run in the morning.
A sunny disposition greeted us with unseasonably warm February sunshine deceiving us that we were up early for a June or July run! The views were stunning, the scenery delectable and the feeling of being at one with the world as we headed throu fields to the coast wall, past the world famous oyster fishery and to Cudmore Grove National Nature Reserve and back to base. I found an old pic of me running through Cudmore on my round the island 1-30 half, helped surely by the military haircut?! Oh dear!
We will miss the round the island half this year owing to a small race called the SDW100.
We have the Steyning Stinger on sunday, where I am doing the marathon and Mrs UB and Lily are doing the half. The SDW is my second favourite place to run. Mersea alway will have my heart and soul.
