My series “Frodo in Wales” takes a look at running and travelling on a budget. Part 1 took me from Chester, across to Conway along the coast, then down to Betws-y-Coed and finally to the summit of Moel Siobod and back.
Just so we’re clear, I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing. Part 1 taught me a lot of safety elements, and as a result, part 2 will be a lot more safety orientated; certainly when it comes to the mountain ranges. These deserve at least a little bit of respect and I don’t really want to get the mountain rescue involved if at all possible.
I thought I’d better mention this before I head out, because I do realize that sometimes I can come across a little blazé in these running things I do, but I do put more thought into things, the more I learn the hard way. I did so many things wrong for John O’Groats I lost all count!
So anyway, now that’s out of the way. The plan is this afternoon, to grab a train to Birmingham, then a coach all the way to tenby; getting there around 8:30pm. The run will start tomorrow morning. I’m not entirely sure what route I taking, or a definite final destination; only that it will be somewhere along the north coast of Wales; covering most likely 150-200 miles and a couple of peaks along the way.
