High Rigg Walk - 29/05/2011

Blencathra from the Chapel near High Rigg
We all had a bit of a lie in after Owen's problems in the early morning, so it was afternoon on the Sunday by the time anyone felt like doing much.

Ian MacBurnie (another colleague), Yol Macklin, and Paul Godbold came with me on a short sunny walk up High Rigg.

We did a little scree running and I showed Yol (who's a well experienced road runner) some basic fellrunning technique on the way down. She's bought a pair of fell shoes now, so I think we might have another convert.

Nursery Slopes!
In the evening we had a party to celebrate Owen's 40th, which included a slacklining session laid on by John Wooton who had been going to dangle ropes down Broad Stand for the BG attempt. The Birthday Pie was a great idea: I'd have appreciated that for mine!

Fellrunner's Birthday Pie!
