More Grizedale Letterboxes

The weather forecast was for showers so we thought we might get washed off the crag if we went climbing, and with so much more training required to be ready for the Rab MM in September (especially after being scared silly by the amazing amount of ground covered by Rachel & Richard last weekend during the Saunders MM) we decided to go for a run. Thing is, mostly I find running to be very hard to motivate myself for – it’s such hard work – I have to add an extra incentive, Letterbox treasure…

The Habitat
"...can I have a Gin & Tonic please?", Top Gear is on in a moment...
The Arrival
Laetitia said her Icebreaker tank-top form the Nature Shop was perfect; cool to run in yet not cold when resting due to chilling perspiration.
Is it Laetitia or another Grizedale sculpture?

  1. Ice breaker tops are really nice, but they do tend to get holes quite easily! Love the sculptures. I had a 1hr40 run along the canal and around the fields this morning… so no great mileage for me this weekend you’ll be glad to hear

    1. 1 hr 40 mins for you is about the same as my stroll to the letter box (5 mins) – although just at the moment, that would be a real marathon – I’ve got rather painful Gout!

  2. What a weird place! But probably more fun than “running” through the undergrowth round Thirlmere; not a recommended route, it took 3 hrs to do under 11 miles!!!! (Ok for a walk though).
