November update…

Written by Haydn Williams

Apologies, dear blog readers, for I have been lax in posting updates. Here’s the last few weeks in a mostly-pictorial nutshell…

After watching Wales Rally GB on a Thursday, I visited Llandegla the next day to ride the new black and red trails. They’re amazing.

That evening I went up to Snowdonia to meet MPS and spent the weekend running over mountains.

The following weekend I managed to catch Against Me! at the Rescue Rooms in Nottingham. I swapped the press pit for the mosh pit, and it was great. I’ve never known a band with such relentless energy and amazing, thoughtful tunes to match.

On the Sunday I met Greg for a morning run around a very foggy Bradgate Park. A nice stretch of the legs, and he promised to visit again when the views across Leicestershire are actually visible rather than obscured by grey fuzziness.

Last weekend we were dog-sitting at my parents’ house, so a return to Llandegla was in order. Becs and I ran the ‘long walk’ route which proved to be 85% fire road and a bit dull, and then I took my bike around the red loop again. It was still brilliant.

And that’s that; I promise I’ll be more timely in the future.
