Comfort running down memory lane

“90 mins on rolling trail.  Walking breaks are actively encouraged where appropriate i.e. steeper climbs where your breathing becomes non-conversational.”

There are times when I need the running equivalent of a Batchelor’s Hug, and for me hugs come in two forms: the hug of the familiar and the hug of the sea.  Today, I decided that a super-hug was in order, so I headed to the scene of many a childhood walk and ran along the cliffs from the Birling Gap to Eastbourne.

Thirty years, and it hasn’t changed a bit.

    Errrm! I would have preferred “along” rather than “over” the cliffs.

    That is a big comfort place for me too, my 16th birthday treat was a walk along the path at Cuckmere Haven. Just perfect.

  3. Hope the trails and the sea views did the tick and all’s well with your running again.

  4. I hope the hug goes with you when you leave.
