Ten years ago I ran my first hill race in Scotland. ‘Going up, I felt simply awful,’ I noted at the time. It doesn’t get any easier - and sometimes it really can be ‘awful’ - but I am continually grateful to have discovered this beautiful madness.

Not sure. Snow has stopped in Edinburgh. They are made of tough stuff in the Borders.

Scottish winter finally rears its head in Edinburgh. Once the Pentlands emerge, they will be coated in white. Running dress code remains shorts nonetheless.

A beautiful illustration of hill running in Scotland: ‘The route must pack in the most amount of climbing for any race so short.’ Chapelgill is tomorrow.

A snapshot of the High Peak Marathon: flailing around in darkness and clag on the edge of Bleaklow. Let’s call it character-building.

That was you? I thought it was the army initially. Thanks for the sweets.

We did - although some time was spent doing loops around Bleaklow instead.

I had forgotten about this. I went from leading the race to finishing fourth, capitulating in the final eight miles. A lesson in how not to run a marathon.

It was quite hard. Navigational issues - but that won’t surprise you...

Drawing a line on a map is straightforward; running along it in the early hours of a dark, windy, sleep-deprived morning in the Dark Peak promises to be more challenging. High Peak Marathon time.

The Mountains are Calling has only just been updated to acknowledge Graham Nash’s third and fourth successful completions of Ramsay’s Round. Now he has done a fifth (and only the fourth ever in ‘winter’).

After reading TMAC few mths ago I jumped onto ‘Heights of Madness’. What an utter delight it was. I read with map beside me tracing the route zig zagging across UK learning as I went. Felt like was along for the ride. There’s a lot of UK I want to see. Great book 😉

Very kind, Gemma. I am equally delighted you enjoyed the books - two very different beasts! Thanks again for your comments.

I didn’t think I was terribly good at spurring this evening, but what a great way to start the week. Never regret running - especially here.

Thanks, Adrian. In terms of mentality and motivation, as well as an unadulterated affection for the hills, I see Angela Mudge as the nearest thing to Jasmin.
