Running in the clouds

Here at 826m alt, we have been in the clouds for most of the day. However, after the past few days of inactivity, I was hankering for a run.... not a long one, but one that would stretch my legs. The Col de Port route forestiere circuit ticked all of the right boxes, under 10km but with a couple of hundred metres of ascent on good tracks. So the pooch and I (in full running waterproofs) headed out this afternoon and it turned out to be one of the best runs I have had in a long while, when everything worked as it should ... I actually felt strong rather than pathetically weak for the first time in a long while and I completed the run 4 minutes faster than my previous best. Despite being in the clouds, it was still a beautiful circuit with the autumnal colours in their full glory
