Over the hills and far away
A routine run turned into a small adventure today as Liz and I took off for a bit of unintentional fell running. The run started off as routine and then in a bid to get up to the top of a previously unexplored hill we took off first along one quad track and then (after losing Molly, Liz's Jack Russell) another one that was more promising and did indeed taks us a good long way of walking/running up to near the top. Reluctant to turn back we (after checking that Claonairigh Taxis had not gone out and about on his other job) set off cross country through a field and then a clear fell to get down to the tracks above Auchindrain museum and our eventual lift home. Very satisfying and good fun...just got to wash the trainers now...VERY muddy indeed.
