Spring Feast

Fell Running is fun again!

After an interminably wet winter it seems that Spring has arrived.  Three consecutive days of blue skies and distant horizons has made running in the hills a pleasure once again and left me hungry for more.

Like a starving man at a banquet I have gorged on the season’s new promise, feasting on the mountains of Snowdonia under crystal skies.

The Edale Skyline, relishing now the challenge of its energy sapping peat and delighting in the views across Kinder.

And closer to home the trails of Burbage and the splendid vista westwards towards Win Hill and Mam Tor.

And today as I ran away from Stanage Edge, warmed for once by sun rather than exertion, the sweetest dessert – the cry of a Curlew – surely a sign that the long, wet winter is behind us.
