Today you join me at The Grizzly 2010 - Beauty and the Beach, an annual 20 mile all terrain run along the South Devon coast at Seaton.
It was lovely weather as I joined my Twitter friend and AMWM listener Iain, from the North Devon Triathlon Club (left).
Iain is going to Kona later this year as a qualified age grouper at the Ironman Hawaii world championships so hes a true athlete!
Join me as we run along the beach, through rivers, fields of slurry, tough wooded hills and the infamous river bogs of Branscombe on this fantastic race put on by the Axe Valley Runners. Its testament to the route and the organisers that many of the people I spoke to on this race have all run 9 or more Grizzlys - it really is an experience.
Around every corner is a new hazzard and the sound on the wind of music of many types. How many races have a Scottish piper at the top of one tough hill, followed by a Tibetan temple with bongos and diggeridoo - then as you run through the fields you pass a lonely house with a beautiful girl sat playing a solo fiddle in the garden? Its this spirit of community involvement that makes this race special. Join us for the ambience and the run plus a chat with Iain about Kona.

We tell the story of the Prime Meridan as I straddle the Western and Eastern Hemispheres and we talk about Longitude.
There's an embarrasing toilet moment and a visit to a Fish and Chip shop.
