Devon Doors

As every day in June passes I realise that deciding not to run every day was a smart move, I love when I am clever, partly probably because this does not happen often. Smart and sensible, wow sometimes I amaze myself.

Today I managed an 8 mile bike ride to the Chemists (Paige- read drugstore) it was dry, warm and a little windy. You get a different perspective on the bike, I got to see things I had not noticed before in the car (going too fast and worrying about what is coming round the corner on the narrow lanes means eyes firmly fixed on the road) or running (where I spend most of the time examining my trainers!) more nice houses whose gardens I could see from the saddle, footpaths, muddy tracks, wild foxgloves oh and more stinging nettles. Must admit I could have done without the up close and personal sight of the dead squirrel though but you cant have it all!

I leave you with some Devon Doors.

About shazruns

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!

    Devon must a marvellous place to cycle, and yes, I know what you mean about getting a different perspective on everything from the comfort of the saddle.

    Beautiful pictures!
    Shame about the dead squirrel, I had to walk past a squashed frog on Wednesday. Not your average road kill for these parts.

  8. I wish we had more beautiful scenery around where I live. Love the pics.
