Here I am 'in action' on one of my regular training routes. My thanks to the mystery photographer - whom I seem to remember running past me in the other direction.
I was greeted by many of the Rundumadum Runners Club''' who were enjoying a Winter Training Run. Perhaps the photographer thought I was one of them. In any event, I'm pleased with the result!
The trails are very popular with all categories of runners and walkers. When I first started training here 20 years ago I'd be be lucky to meet two or three runners, and often there were none.
In the woods the recently way-marked Check-My-Tree Trail is thankfully proving to be a great success. I've yet to train on it without meeting other runners.
As I'm newly in the M70 category I've added a touch of antique tint to my photograph! I hope I'll be forgiven for that.
''' The Rundumadum Ultra Runners Club organize the annual ultra-marathon around the Vienna boundary. It's a 132 km epic. On their website recently I discovered they'd introduced a new shorter distance into the programme - it's a mere 42 kms!
Maybe I'm up for that one. We'll shall see how the training goes.
Toi! Toi! Toi!
and on we go
