The Lady Fellrunner: Tentative Times! – Running Fitness Article

Thanks to Frank Golden for letting me use these images – they are great! Find him here on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/Frankgoldenphotography/  It’s been a while since my last blog post, apologies for that.  I have been hibernating and feeling grumpy at the most hideous winter for a long time – muddy, wet, cold and snow besieged – I am so looking forward to winter 18/19 (said no English person ever).  Yesterday somebody mentioned Christmas and it put me in a bad mood…
