Summer whizzed by
And so I have been waiting for the rain to stop. And for an Indian Summer to head to Scotland instead of lingering smugly over the south of England. But no such luck. I have also realised that while I’ve been waiting for the return of summer (didn’t we have something that vaguely resembled that concept for a week in June?) that I have been too busy to keep my blog up to date. Shame on me!
So… over the last month or so I have climbed Munros, mooched around with Little Miss Outdoors on her school hols, climbed another Munro, surfed and body boarded in glorious Welsh surf with great pals G&T and Little A, climbed more Munros, run a few smaller hills, climbed another Munro or two, squeezed in some work, climbed more hills, become a yoga addict, summitted just one more Munro – and generally got wet in Scotland’s great outdoors.
I’m struggling to recall a day/evening in many weeks when it hasn’t rained on me as I’ve walked, climbed and run but still I’ve had a fun so-called summer.
This weekend I’m off to do some marshalling and a race report for the mad but popular Bealach Mor cycle challenge organised by the first rate Hands On Events. Then I might take another opportunity to fuel my new Munro bagging addiction.
And maybe, just maybe I’ll see some sun before Christmas is suddenly upon us again!
