31.5.09 - Run to the Sun

This is a small wood on the edge of town where I went for a run yesterday evening. The sun was low and slanting through the trees, and I didn't see a single person while I was running. But I did see a grass snake, a fox and heard numerous rustlings in the undergrowth to either side. It never ceases to amaze me that most runners persist in running round city streets, when there is almost always somewhere like this as an alternative. But then if everyone ran round here my run wouldn't have been such a wonderful experience :)
