Well there you have it, one year on. We made it through the first year. It’s not always been a smooth ride but we make a great team. We’re both mental, that’s why we work, love you Barbara Ann X x.
So for our anniversary present I took her for a run. More of a hobble to start. After a lovely breakfast, we went down to the finish line, to see if anyone’s finished in the 100 mile race. They reckon another 9 hours 😲 Brutal! We chilled in the room, then got ready to go out. I knew I’d be ok once I got going but it hurt to start. I thought It’d be a good idea to show Babs the first bit of the ultra and look at Swallow falls. What I forgot is Babs isn’t confident off road. So a bit steady to start, which is fine by me, I think she enjoyed it really.
We finally make it to Swallow falls and it’s very noisy but fantastic.
We weave or way through the trees and find a nicer grassy trail, this takes us back to the fire road. We take this lovely undulating road all the way back to Betws y coed. Stopping briefly to watch a MTB race going on in the distance. Babs was pushing the pace all the way back, was a nice run. Plus my legs felt fine. We stopped at the bridge in the village, to watch a Heron hunting. Stood there patiently, looking, waiting then, Boom! It dipped its head in the water and pulled out a fish, amazing. It shook it about then swallowed it whole. Who needs TV 👍.
Day 265 done 100 to go.
1674 miles total.
