Bowland Fell Runners News: December 2013

News: December 2013

I had a great walk around the course with my Dad (who is injured at the moment) and thoroughly enjoyed the light that we had early on when there was a bit of mist. Thanks to everyone who turned out, I’m not sure how many there were but it looked like around 20. The mince pies were scoffed (my mum’s pies were spot on and very tasty because my dad broke the habit of a lifetime and bought the decent mince filling!). We managed to get rid of all the left-overs as well! There wasn’t much opportunity for a good chat afterwards as the weather deteriorated into cold rain but at least it mostly held off for the duration of the run/walk. I’ll see you all during 2014 when I honestly aim to try and get back and do a bit!! I’ve added a few images to the gallery (Boxing Day Run 2013) that I grabbed on my way round……hope you enjoy and any comments are, as always, gladly received.
