Langstrothdale Loop from Horton - 4th January 2015

A lovely run from Horton looping out through Langstrothsdale via Pen y Ghent, Plover Hill and Foxup before returning on the Pennine Way.

Me, Hester and Harry had a guest running friend of Harry's with us today, the completely mental springer spaniel Wallace, and as an experiment we attached a garmin running watch to Wallace's collar. Our run was 17 miles and, although Wallace was on a lead for 5 miles of the run, he still clocked in at 23 miles - basically off-lead he did 50% further than us, zig zagging side to side and generally running about like an idiot!
