Is this as mad as it feels?

Because to be honest with you, dragging myself out of bed at 5 o’clock in the morning and going for a run on probably the coldest morning of the winter certainly strikes me as somewhat bonkers! But what the hell, it’s Janathon and it must be done so 5 miles later I was back home again with a frozen face and decidedly chilly extremities!

As I said last night, I’ve pretty well run out of my own pictures for sheep of the day so today I’ve borrowed a couple – the first is  from a fellow Ryeland breeder called Sarah Louise Hutchings who breeds coloured Ryelands (brown ones) and this picture made me smile!

And the second one was taken in the centre of New York by my sister, Prince Charles was promoting British wool, I’m told it drew quite a crowd!

About JovialGnome

Heavily into running 20 years ago with a PB of 1.42.00 in the Shrewsbury Half Marathon in 1985 and 3.48.49 in the Telford Marathon in 1986 - then for some reason I just stopped and have done little or no physical exercise between then and 2 or 3 years ago! I've now moved to Boston in Lincolnshire where I really enjoy looking after my 13 Ryeland ewes and 1 ram and am rejoicing in the distinct lack of hills! I suspect that sub 4 hour marathons are gone forever but hey, I'm having a great time trying!

    Love the photos! The snowy faces are very appealing 🙂 It’s not too cold where I ran tonight, compared with yesterday when I though my face would crack it was so cold!
