When most were recovering from hangovers, I was somehow dragging myself out of bed to go and run in Llandegla Forest. All for the Wrexham & Chester Tri Club’s joint ‘Buddy Run’.
With a £2 donation to Nightingale House, your name was put into a hat and you were paired with a ‘running buddy’.
I had no idea how it was going to pan out. It was trying to snow…
But off we went up into the forest. It felt rather odd not running by myself really! I’ve just got use to running by myself I suppose.
I’ve been meaning to try the running trails at Llandegla for a while. Country lanes are normally where you’ll find me running, but I loved running in the forest! Plenty of muddy puddles…yes…but it just varied the run a bit more than normal.
With yummy soup provided by One Planet Adventure to finish, it was a great way to kick off 2017.
Thank you to everyone who was involved in organising the run and the company I had the pleasure of running with. I’m looking forward to getting back to Llandegla for more running and riding. I’ll hopefully find some great company to run with this year too!
These photos aren’t mine, so thank you to who took them! Hope you don’t mind me using them.
