SORE League Week 42

Thank you for posting on the SORE League.

The next time you go out for a "hike" think of it more as a "saunter" as quoted below by John Muir:

"I don't like either the word 'hike' or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains - not 'hike!' Do you know the origin of that word saunter? It is a beautiful word. Away back in the Middle Ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going they would reply,' A la sainte terre', 'To the Holy Land.' And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not 'hike' through them.”

Have a great week of running or evening sauntering! :runner: :wink:

Re: SORE League Week 42

A very, very wet run around Henlow/Langford, on and off-road this morning. I clocked up just under 11 miles altogether - including an unscheduled change of route when we encountered a very new fence and bolted gate across our route, shortly followed by a big patch of nettles. We thought it best to retrace our steps at that point. Thanks to Andrew P for leading us round - there's never a dull moment on a Yellow group exploratory run! :laughing:
