the road I run

Stay off the road

Stay off the road

For those of you who aren't huge Lord of the Rings geeks like myself and are not familiar with the 'Stay off the road' reference, take a minute to have a look at this clip from The Fellowship of the Ring. Back in October, I posted a couple of photos from my early morning run on Instagram and the general consensus was that I should 'stay off the road' and find somewhere far less spooky to run instead. I'll admit, whenever I hear a rustling noise coming from one the hedges, my heart starts to beat a little faster and my feet carry me just that little bit speedier along the path, but generally, it's a cute, little squirrel preparing to jump out at me as opposed to the Ring Wraiths (I'm so, so sorry if Lord of the Rings is not your thing ... just look at the nice pictures instead).
