Frodo Goes to Wales

Last weekend, I traveled to Wales to basically run about with no planned route. My rule was I was not allowed to say “no” to any local route suggestion made by anyone I spoke to whilst out there. The result had me travel all along the north coast, and finish by climbing up Moel Siobod before returning to Betws-y-Coed.

This video shows some of my trip, and a fair bit of messing about. It also shows that I can’t say anywhere in Wales properly and I don’t seem to know what part of my phone does the filming.

Hi there,

As many of you already know, I do quite a lot of running about. I’m not the best at it, I’m certainly not the fastest at it, but I do lots of it!

This weekend, I am running around in Wales in search of the best places to run. Perhaps you’ve seen me out there, or I’ve spoken to you already. I’m not difficult to spot; I’m the one running around with a blue backpack and look like an idiot.

Sometimes it’s great just to drop your training agenda and just run about somewhere. The number of times I am so focused on getting further away (as is the nature of running), I don’t really notice where I am. This time, in the nice weather I decided to take my time and actually look around a bit.
