Having spent a frustrating waiting in for a phone call all the while dying to get out for a run in the sun whilst it is here, I finally gave up at 5 o’clock and fled the house for my newest favourite run.
My aim was the woods to take photos of the bluebells
not as good a display as I hoped, not as good as the ones at Killerton and not as good as ones at Banstead woods that you can see here. Can’t make up my mind if they are going to get better or not, but will go back and check.
Fortunately the other scenery was as impressive as always
even more so with the rape seed out
The run was not so good but made all the better by seeing this bunny eating his dinner before I returned home for mine.
I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

Oh, grrr that the phone call kept you from the sunshine.
One of the things I love about running is that it tunes me in so much more to seasonal changes. Beautiful pics here. But isn`t everything so much later this year, in this part of the world at least? Bluebells only getting established here now in Ireland, and I spotted my first swallows, three weeks later than usual.
I know bluebell walk was to be held end of April but really they are only just out now, but am so pleased they are along with the blossoms that smell amazing
Oh I can’t wait to catch my first sight of bluebells this year! The boyfriend and I are going camping next weekend so fingers crossed they’ll make an appearance, love them 🙂
Lovely bunny – i love the bluebells too – this is my favourite time of year, just for them.
how do you take such brilliant photos? Do you run with your camera 🙂
Bluebells always look better in the flesh than captured on camera I find – somehow the impressiveness of a sea of bluebells in the woods never quite transfers fully…
