Yesterday I ran and walked from Balmaha to Rowardennan and back. Running with me was my friend Hamish and we had set out with the intention of just walking the route, but we decided to run every so often. The weather was perfect with not a ripple on the water and it made for some nice photos. The walk/run went fine apart from a bit of discomfort in the knee that has been a problem since December. I was fine today with just some general stiffness.
Hamish did great as he has never ran or walked on that sort of terrain and certainly never for over 3 hours but he seemed to really enjoy it. Nevertheless he was glad to sit down in the car at the end.
It was good to be out on the Way on a calm day. Sometimes we tend to forget that Scotland is such a beautiful place and only a short drive from the city centre.
