Believe it or not, it's summer out there.
Despite the rain and with the arrival of my new shoes, we decided it was time to hit the trail.
I'm new to running, so when given the choice, I optimistically opted for the 10km stairs route. I followed Ruben who set a punishing pace through the woods in a climb and fall over loose trail and slate, chasing the river. My new road shoes held despite the rain, it was simply my legs that couldn't keep up with the gate-hurdling Ruben.
My efforts eventually paid off, making it back to the office with a smile, and my shoes broken in.
Below is a short I've titled "Ruben kills Alex".
Note to self: Next time - Run harder. Run further. Keep up longer.
