My new and incorrect (I got the new & old rivers the wrong way around 🙄) take on Cary’s “New and correct English atlas”. 

With my little 3 miler lost in the middle of what was apparently once part of Hounslow Heath.

My running club SHAEF Shifters on pacer duties at Bushy parkrun this morning.

Here’s a map showing the areas of Camp Griffiss used by SHAEF during the war.

18th century cartographer John Cary used to include public houses on his road route maps. 

In today’s run commute map, I’ve followed his style, but with fast food outlets instead. 

Pubs are a dying trade these days, while fried chicken thrives…

This one is for all those that continued where I left off. 

Heading into 14hrs of darkness around the remote and wild west coast of Cornwall to St. Ives, and on along the North coast to the finish at Porthtowan. 

147 runners started the Arc of Attrition 2018 at noon on Friday. 

25 have finished, 29 are still going, 93 retired, and 150 volunteers to keep us watered, fed and safe. 

The epitome of a truly epic adventure. Thanks MudCrew Events.

Even the best-laid plans sometimes go wrong. 

But hopefully not today. 

This is the plan, tomorrow’s map will show the reality…

There is no Mt. Bushy. 

But if there was, a summit might look something like this…

Six miles around the back garden.

Trying to work from memory of the route and what I saw.

Limited opportunities today, but managed to explore the bottom of a swimming pool. 

Lovely it was too.

A few miles to test the old knee, and the new lantern. 

Under a lilywhite moon.

Breaking the day with a walk commute along the Crane Valley this morning.

Then illustrating it on the bus home was an interesting challenge…
