With the grey skies and fresh snow (but above zero temperatures) today all the options for adventure didn’t really seem all that adventurous.

  • Climbing wall? A good option, but not that exciting – we’re not going often enough to make a difference, and it’s expensive too.
  • Mountain bike ride? Another good option, but Laetitia decided the light covering of wet (it was drizzling) snow would make it too slippy.
  • Walk? Perhaps the best option with the snow covering, but we felt we needed to do something more aerobic to help get our fitness back.

What about a run says I… Laetitia agreed – a good option! But where? What about the section of the Dales Way that goes through Staveley and on to Kendal then back past Potters Tarn?

Potters Tarn is really a small ancient reservoir for the paper mill in Burneside
So how does this work exactly?

Running in the snow ... we must be crazy! It was bloody slippy coming down, climbing is safer!
