Long, long time since I have been in the Arenig range and the Arenig race gave a perfect excuse. Pleased with a time of 1.19:54, it was as fast as I could have managed, with a bit of a sprinting tussle at the end. At 6 miles, it was shorter than I am used to, so found the faster pace of a shorter race a bit of a struggle(you get what you train for), but the running was great and the decent was fast. The last mile along a disused railway line seemed to go on for ages. Pictures in the usual place.
Cracking race, starting in the middle of nowhere. Best soup and cakes of any race west of Offa's Dyke.
After a customer visit yesterday, I took some time out on the drive home for a jog (still tired from Sunday's race) up Moel Famau. Intersected of Offa's Dyke, I think it must have the best view in Wales. To the west Snowdon, Cader Idris, Arenig's, etc and to the east Liverpool, Manchester, Wrexham, etc. OK, so it has the best view to the West in Wales. Caught the sun setting behind Snowdon as I was starting to descend, stunning. Note to self, must remember to carry camera on such adventures. Great training area and a place it would be reasonable to run at night with a head torch.
