This was a fun run – i love to play with Ice and take my time , it was a beautiful day , not a cloud in the sky  but could be very cold in the wind, my dad said it was bright and fresh today !

the pike

towards the mast I keep off the road as my trainers are not good on the road !

lots of people were walking today

two lads

playing with ice

crossing ice , i can run across this but enjoy slipping across this

I  am still playing with ice , my dad can wait ! i am near the Ice patch !


I love climbing !

you can see the rocks were covered in frost today

lots of Ice today

I can run across the water -well ice anyway !!!

its still muddy under the ice !

a lone runner

see if i am careful not break the ice !

my trainers are still clean !

the pike

I use this as a navigation aid when its dark – its the boundary wall between Chorley and Horwich

 that’s better the trainers are covered – my glove marks where the bog came up to ! Don’t tell mum 😉

on the trigg which was covered with frost and ice  – be careful this is not easy !

we went off path

note from dad – this is the terrain that Jake can cover in the dark , please be careful the grass will tire you out and twist your ankle if you get this wrong  -what Jake makes look easy is not !
Note from dad :

Note from dad :this is at Jake’s neck height -we don’t normally go this way  though i am aware of this as a marker and so we keep well away from this area  – please be aware of this  if you have limited  visibility in fog/sleet/dark  ,This has been left in place after the work to upgrade the mast to digital  was  completed  several months ago , 

my dad’s trainer  after one small bog !

I have just got out of one bog which was above one of my knees !

getting out backwards from a bog – my dad is teaching me to self rescue myself from these bogs  !

these don’t look deep but they are !!!

bog marks above my knees on both legs !!

the two lads !
 running down the tramway

4.88 miles per hour including many stops for the ice and saying hello to people !

-3 to 1  today bright and breezy !
