Don’t need gritters where I’m going

No not hell but the beach, major advantage of coastal running on days like this is the abundant salt. Not so good the rest of the year when it wrecks your shoes apparently.

It was extremely cold and the windchill was a killer but worth it to get out to see some cool stuff….

Soft snow, in fact probably the best bit of the run for shelter

I climbed the ladders to get up on the cliffs – may have been a mistake as I lost all my shelter and it was bastard freezing up there.. Boring photo really but I took it to remiond me next time i’m dying of heat exhaustion in an ultra that I did the hard yards in winter
