Promenade promenade 2

A very foggy start to the day and it occurred to me that there might be some good photo opportunities out there this morning.  Left it a bit late to go out but found that the promenade at Weston had been taken over by a half marathon run.

Feeding Station

The race itself was two laps of a route from the Pier, along the prom and back over a hill to Kewstoke at Sand Bay. So half of it would be dead flat, the rest, undulating in running parlance. (It means hilly)  The promenade part of the race took up the whole width of the prom in places so not much room to manoeuvre on a bike.

Going well

A small group of runners appearing out of the fog. As an ex runner, sights like these bring back many happy memories pounding around the streets and countryside. The half marathon was my favourite distance and travelled a lot around the country doing different ones.

Weston Grand Pier

Further down the prom it was more restricted so it was time to call it a day. The mist had all but cleared by this time so a chance to get a shot of the pier.

Just 2.5 miles today. That leaves this week's target a little short of the 100.
