Run - music

I very very rarely run with headphones, and  when I do I tend to listen to  podcasts or audiobooks. Sometimes I'm reminded why I prefer to run without a soundtrack.

A couple of days ago I ran out to see the bluebells in daylight. In the little south facing copse where the bluebells always flower earliest, I stood and listened after I'd taken a photo. At least seven different birds were singing (I'm no good at identifying birdsong so I have no idea what they were), and bees and hoverflies were gently buzzing . It was a lovely moment and made me really appreciate the sounds of nature.

    1. Thank you - I love running through this wood all year, but bluebell season is my favourite!

  2. Been doing much the same pausing and listening on the dog walks here. Wonderful.

    1. There's so much to hear isn't there? I don't pause that often when I run (as I want to get it over with quickly) but I'm always amazed at how much sound there is all around when I do.


I'm not sure if anyone reads this. But if you do, and you'd like to comment, I'd get very excited. And would try to reply. Thanks!
