I got the idea for todays run from redhenrun who did a photorun around Shannon Harbour and posted some great pics.
Todays schedule called for an easy 6 miles and as I had a day off and wanted to go to Exeter, I thought why not combine the two. I chose a great day both for the day off and for the run, it was cold, but the sun was out and the sky was cloudless.
I parked the car and headed for the river opting for the sunny side of the Exe. Either side of the River runs a wide path great for cyclists, walkers and runners to share, not that there were many people about today but I would imagine in the summer it is a popular place. The Quay has many nice eateries, coffee shops and boutiques all of which I have earmarked for a return visit when I am not running or sweaty.
Actually it was a great run (not something your hear me say often) everything was perfect. It had it all.
- Great weather
- Beautiful scenery
- Water birds
- No hills in sight
- Public toilets
- Signs for the public toilets telling you how many minutes away they were (extremely important for me this morning!)
- To top it all was pleased with my pace (not something your hear me say often)
Nothing like a good run to set your day up right is there?
Here are the pics:-
This last picture is for those living in the frozen wastes of Essex where the daffodils have failed to raise their heads, all out here in the warmth of the south-west!
