The Garden

The Garden

While I was out running, in the rain, on Sunday, I was admiring the fields full of bluebells and the primula that were blooming by the side of the road.
@TheWelshWookie and I had decided to run the Glen road in reverse: and it turned out to be tougher than expected! So it was good to be distracted by the beautiful plants and the lambs gambolling in the fields.
When we got back, I realised that our own garden is getting to that point in Spring where the colours are beginning to pop and burst out all over. The fushia, clematis and roses aren’t yet out- they’ll give some late summer and autumn colour. But the peonies and azalea are showing off their style!
Wanna see?





How’s your garden looking at the moment?

Supporting the Around the World Running Blog Relay 2014

For those of you who haven’t heard, the wonderful Kyla over at Motivation came up with a brilliant idea last year, for all of us running bloggers who have connected over the internet, from the four corners of the globe.

Runners blog relay 2014

She came up with the idea of having a running bloggers relay race, and the inaugural event takes place during March and April this year 😀

The idea is pretty simple: we run a virtual relay race! It’ll allow us to see how far we get, in terms of:

  1. GLOBAL COVERAGE where we are from will allow a map to be drawn up, detailing where in the world we’re running – hopefully it will be truly global!
  2. GLOBAL DISTANCE we commit to a distance, which will allow the total number of kilometres run to be calculated. It’ll be really good to see how far we can get….. can we log enough distance to go around the world? 😉

It’s great!

And Kyla’s decision to run it in March and April will really help with Spring training!

So, who’s in? All you need to do is fill out this simple form to register where you are and how far you’ll be running. Remember it’s from 1st March  – 30th April, so hopefully it’ll be lots of kilometres!

For those interested in an extra dimension, fellow blogger The Improbable Runner suggested that we could use the Charity Miles App to raise funds for charity. I think it’s a great idea, as an added extra!

So, what do you think? Interested? Have you registered yet? Go on, you know the challenge will be great!
