Happy New Year everyone!
The weather today has been wonderful with a beautiful blue sky highlighting the bare branches of the trees. I often take my camera with me on my runs and today I thought I'd upload some of the images that caught my eye. I ran 5.5 miles at a good pace although I huffed and puffed up the hills - it was then that I remembered that I hadn't used my asthma inhaler; oops!
This first lane has dried up considerably since I ran along it on Christmas Day when it was just a sheet of water pouring down the whole lane. Today there were just a couple of rivulets on either side. I love the way the sunlight shines on the wet tarmac.
