Fellrunning and Deuchars

YC got some hill training in today with a run up Cheviot and Hedgehope via his favourite Chevy Chase route. The weather was suitably poor on the tops - rain, mist, and wind - but the run was fun as always. In the evening, YC slaked the raging runner's thirst with some Deuchars at The Tynemouth Lodge. Michael Duff & Elaine were up in Tynemouth for a few days and are pictured here with the Duff family. Michael & Elaine are both in training for the Great North Run and were interested to learn more about fell running. Elaine hails from Northern Ireland and her home town is near the Mountains of Mourne. Reports that Elaine is already planning her first foray into the Mournes armed with a bumbag and fellshoes are probably not true.
