Why I Run

Every month I visit the Lake District to spend a day running in the hills. It’s good for the body, good for the head, good for the soul. I film the run and chat to myself about whatever feels important that day. This month: why I run (and why I think you should do too…).

  6. This morning, a friend and I got up at 6 to run up a fell and skinny-dip in a tarn. We’re not ‘serious’ runners though; we’re laughing, chatting, messing-around runners. Running in the hills is when I’m most alive.

  7. I just shared your video on fb and a friend messaged me with a poem, ‘The Song of the Ungirt Runners’ by Charles Hamilton Sorley that you should check out.
    cheers
