happen, and then lots happened...
To recap, in April, I was invited to go on the most amazing training
camp with the ‘Trail Ferrets’.
Trail Ferret is based in North Devon, the perfect spot for endurance
training or just running on trails.
The head of the Ferrets, calls himself ‘Papa Ferret’ and has ample
experience to draw upon (no, he is not really old), he is just an excellent coach.
I would’ve liked to stay for all the days of the camp, but on 1st May every year, I have a tradition where I walk my birthday years in miles. I used to run my age every year, but then when I had my accident in December 2008, I had only just started to walk again by March the following year, so I was not able.
Instead, a friend trained to run the miles for me, he had never run before, and this was an incredible gesture, one I will never forget. The year after that I walked it with another friend, and now the walk has ‘stuck’.
I left the camp the eve of my birthday to go back to Cornwall for my walk the next day. I was sorry to leave as I really had a great time and met some amazing people and the running routes were beautiful as well as challenging.
In superb style, Paul did it!
