I run.

At home, usually 5 miles. In Belfast last Sunday (16-3-8) I decided on a run about 6.30 because I needed it, and to give my son peace to sleep a bit longer.

So far so good. I'd only gone 100m from the city centre hotel and just turning into Ormeau Road to head out of the city, when I get heckled and then chased up the road by 2 drunks on their way home!

Scary... I'm fit, but not quick any more. Even a drunk who's 30 years younger than me could beat me over 100 m.

Anyway, I escaped. Found a good 4 mile route along a walkway beside the Lagan, which I enjoyed. Even saw a salmon jump!

Equipment: Nerves of steel...

Address: Ormeau Road. Lagan walkway
Directions: Close to Lagan & Ormeau Park
Theme: Other
