It is 9.00 am as we set off on our first spring running of the Mosaic Trail. The last time we ran the Trail, it was minus 3 and there was 4 inches of snow on the ground. Today it is 16 degrees and the worst difficulties we encounter are new born lambs caught in wire fences.
The Trail crosses pasture land and then climbs gently onto Lumley Moor. We enter Dallowgill and Breah, the spaniel, has a quick bathe. The bluebells are just coming out in the old oak woodland and we allow ourselves a walk up through the trees. On the way back we enjoy the lovely down hill running in the warm sunshine. When we arrive back in the village, we realise it has taken us 2.30 to run 14 miles, no records broken, but then we did liberate a few lambs along the way...
And so that is the concept of jelleylegs.....very simply to guide runners on fantastic long distance running routes in beautiful countryside....to provide and / or organize accommodation / food / station pick up and drop off
I believe in being flexible - for example it is possible to:
Contact Jelley Legs by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 01765 603 506 - mobile: 07969 260 858 - in the evening the landline is best as the cottage walls are thick and the signal's bad!
We don't do cooked breakfast, but you won't want any after muesli home made granola, fresh fruit and yogurt, followed by toast made from Damaris"s delicious home made bread and there is plenty of apple juice pressed from our own apples.
