wansfell pike

great things come in small parcels
or so the saying, or a derative of it, goes
for me, this short run ranks way above any other i know of

start at the low wood hotel on windermere
run uphill for around 2.5 miles and 1400ft up to wansfell pike
do not disturb fell ponies as you pass

get to cairn, in the clag, out of breath for photoshoot opportunities

pause for more breath, taking close in shot of upper cairn

start descent of 1400ft over 2.5 miles
run for your life on bottom fields
way faster than feels safe
legs can hardly keep the pace gravity demands
so fast its totally liberating

brake before kissing gate
compose oneself
walk through gate, back to 'civilisation', wearing a massive grin

love it

nice one charlie
