A love of running in the mountains

When I met my wife, I was an unashamed pavement-bashing flat-land runner. The less corners and hills the better as far as I was concerned. But my wife’s love of running in the mountains has started to work it’s magic and whilst I am still aching to set a new marathon PB, I also love running off-road, up and down, over rocks and grass and through streams and snow-fields for hours on end. I am grateful for my wife’s influence in this.

So suddenly this film has resonance with me – I know exactly what Sarah Ridgway is talking about and I am more inspired than ever to don a pair of grippy trail shoes and hit the rough stuff. Enjoy…

I run marathons. Everything else is a result of that.

    Great video!

    At point 01:42 Sarah Ridgway is running up some steps inside what looks like a giant slate mine. Where is that I wonder???
