⏩⏩Up with the birds, for what turned into quite the mini adventure!🚴🏼⏩⏩
Cycled to Elgin, with enough spare time to nip to @aldiuk
for a 🍌 and some pre-run scotch pancakes 🙈
Somehow bagged myself a 2minute PB at @parkrunuk
🎉, despite running past every bench in the park thinking 'Don't tempt me Frodo!'🗺
When I finally got to sit down and contemplate what I fancied from the cafe, I met Graham!
(📸Sat next to my bike)
A lovely but bonkers old man who sat down started talking to me about how he used to work on a farm, then went on about Nobel prize winners for vitamin C and how he used to do network marketing for supplements 🍊
Asked me what I did for a living because he noticed my 'sturdy legs' #thicc
As I said I needed to set of cycling home, he offered a swig of his bottle of Buckfast, claiming the caffeine is helpful🙄🙈
He even told me a poem he made up and said
"If you ever see a Donkey with no hind legs. You know I'm not far away!" Took me a moment for the penny to drop 😂
Then sat in the cafe with my massive coffee☕️, plucking up the courage to set off home in what I knew would be a headwind...💨💨
🌳Took the scenic route home, which I NOW know has more than twice as much ascent than the way there 😩 but on the positive, some beautiful views and quiet roads!
Today might not have been a big mountain and wasn't in the middle of nowhere, but it was still an adventure none the less! 😁
