It might have taken me six hours from putting my running kit on to getting out the door, but I eventually made it out for an 8 mile clip around Epping Forest.

The day was was cool, dark and grey, which – if I closed my ears to the sound of traffic and sirens – was actually kind of soothing.

It wasn’t my fastest 8 miles, but chasing through trees and mud and making my route up as I went, it was kind of fun.

I think that trail running might be in my future. Running to explore and play beats running to simply clock up miles anyday.
