I was away with work last week in Italy, and managed to get out for a few runs around the local trails in the morning. I’ve ran around parts of this loop before – the first time missing a turn off and running 12km instead of 5km and then subsequently getting eaten alive by every insect in the wood.
But this time it was a bit earlier in the year, and running at dawn was really nice, there’s some hardpack areas, but lots of it is mud and stone, making for a nice windy route before work.
And as always a slow run on the trails is better than plodding the road sucking up car fumes!
