Snowdonia Wales

Damp, foggy day on one of the must beautiful ascents I've ever done - up Snowdon. Unfortunately my photos can't tell the story as the thick fog obstructed some of the things I was actually able to see. The views would have been great but I wouldn't have it any other way in this part of the world. On this particular morning I felt so truly placed back in time, more than I have ever before. This is a much different area of the world as far as hiking and running are concerned, and one that I will get back to as much as I can. The header pic shows me what I was actually runnning in. I can now visualize all the lakes inside that area.

I managed to only run 4 times in the past 12 days, but was able to climb a total of 11,824'. The 4 runs were done in France, Italy England and Wales. Probably the best 4 days of running I've ever had. Pair this with the diversity of the runs and I'd have to say it's definately in the top 5 experiences in my life so far.

Day 84 - 129,553' up, 20,447' to go.


  1. Man, you make me want to go back home. Something about moisture on mountains - so different from CO. Good stuff

  2. Nick - That was easily one of the best places I've ever been, and I just finished running in Chamonix a few days earlier! Definately worth visiting next time you're home.
