Playing in the hills

For a while, I have been planning to go out for a play in the hills, take the video camera and spend a bit of time setting up some nice shots so I could put together a video just showing off the trails around Keswick.

Last Sunday morning was the perfect day to do this, so I set off round Latrigg and the Glenderaterra Loop, just to see what I could come up with.

The process involves lots of setting up the camera, running back down the path, turning round, running past the camera and picking it up. As you can imagine, there is a lot of editing to be done.

My original intention was to just keep this video for myself as it is basically just me out training; there is no race going on for people to follow, there are no disasters, no happy marshals, no rain, no man-suit moments. I thought I'd play the video back when I'm lacking a bit of mojo in the depths of winter, just to remind me what it's all about. However, the few people who have seen it on YouTube have been very positive, so I thought I'd stick it on here too.

So, apologies to those of you not lucky enough to live in Keswick, but here is my back yard ;-)
