Come run with me
WHOA! It's hard to blog every week! I can't tell you how many blog posts I make up in my mind as I am driving to work or walking down the street but to get to my desk and actually do it - there always seems so much else on. But last week we took a break and for my children's half-term we went to Holland where I grew up (in part) and where my parents still live. My children love it there - country bumpkins that they are they love being in a small town where they can cycle everywhere and where there is always so much happening. My parents spoil them and everyone has a great time, with quite a few pancakes and pickled herrings thrown in. I love it because apart from the family and friend time, the running around where my parents live is just gorgeous. Most people picture Holland as quite flat and bare, and quite a bit of it is, but where my parents live the landscape is rolling hills and dense woods, and there are an endless amount of trails, paths and riding tracks for me to run on. I never set out on a fixed route and just love the situation of following a trail to see where it takes me. I wanted to take you all with me on one of my runs and after I went out with a dead camera on the first day (flat battery) I got my act together and took some photos. The weather was not amazing, but still... I had good run.
