A climbers view. Stunning light today, even with the brutal headwind, which coincidentally cleared the head.
Just a quick one i took of the coast yesterday. Loved the shades of grey... #itsgrimupnorth #workington #jameater #jamland #skatelife #coast #50shadesofgrey
My face when its nothing but bloody headwinds 🤬🤬
Great morning out at the @itsgrimupnorthrunning Christmas Cracker half marathon along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal today. My first half marathon done.. Sadly watch died at 12 miles so I'm waiting for the official time, and rumour has it its actually 13.7 miles . Edit - 2:15:44 and 62nd of 109 . #running #runner #runnersofinstagram #runmummyrun #thismumruns #improvingrunner #runningplan #runningwithfriends #halfmarathon #raceday #itsgrimupnorth #racephoto

Taking The Diverge off the beaten track. Can’t love this bike more.
I've heard marathons are hard.⁣ ⁣ Even harder when you've a family, job, injuries and regular crazy life to juggle.⁣ ⁣ So here's one HUGE shout out to this incredible lady for smashing her first marathon run yesterday. The determination and mental strength shown to not only complete the 26.2 miles on the day, but to consistently show up for the miles of practice in the months building up with life's stressors on your shoulders, is phenomenal.⁣ ⁣ Sara, you are one strong lady 🌟💪😊🎉⁣ ⁣ A first marathon completed, two stone lost, and a reversal of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease achieved - I think you deserve to put your feet up a little this Christmas 😴🍺😊⁣ ⁣ AWESOME run Sara, and here's to even further success 2019 🙌⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #marathon #leedsliverpoolcanal #itsgrimupnorth #runninggoals #femalefitness #womenshealth #stronglady #inspiration #happycoach #firstmarathon #marathontraining #darlington #success

Hiding in the car where it's warm for as long as possible before venturing out for my first half marathon in many, many years! 😃 #itsgrimupnorth
One day I'll pick a nice, dry runable trail. Not 2day tho! Forgot how muddy Harrock, Hilldale, Parbold gets after rain. Despite opting for Salomons (which I never wear) it was difficult to stay upright & run 6miles on this new route, it needs some tweaking!#trails #trailrunning #trailrunner #harrockhill #hilldale #parbold #runnersofinstagram #womenwhorun #northernrunners #runanywhere #runyourworld #runforyourself #runyourownmiles #runformentalhealth #runhappy #chorley  #lancashire #getmoving #getactive #getgoing #getoutside #getoutdoors #itsgrimupnorth

I changed todays planned run when I got to Winter Hill summit as there was no visibility, rolling fog covered everything! My original run was one I mostly knew but for one small bit. But with the sudden weather change, no 4g cover for maps, and the fact I'm very new with bearings decided I'd save it for another day and I stuck to where I knew. So a shorter endurance run (terrain & weather) with practicing finding and moving on a compass bearing. A slow 6 & half miles of moors in the rain and fog. Lots of fun 😁😁 #trails #trailrunning #trailrunner #fellrunning #fellrunner #moors #westpenninemoors #runnersofinstagram #womenwhorun #northernrunners #runanywhere #runyourworld #runforyourself #runyourownmiles #runformentalhealth #runhappy #Rivington #Winterhill #chorley #lancashire #getmoving #getactive #getgoing #getoutside #getoutdoors #itsgrimupnorth

Grim day on the coast yesterday but nothing for this man! 🐶💪
Lowry and the Pre-Raphaelites. Very good. A lot of studies for paintings. Lowry had some of them up around his house. A great surprise. Go if you can. Free too.
Heavy rain, very cold ankle deep puddles, poor visibility & a wrong turn on moors (I set us right) made a cracking 6 &half mile run today. My mate pushed me to run uphill. Working hard for 2019 😁👍 #wetterthananotterspocket #visorclub #ukrunchat #trailrunning #ukrunchat #visorclub #trails #trailrunning #trailrunner #runnersofinstagram #womenwhorun #northernrunners #runanywhere #runyourworld #runforyourself #runyourownmiles #runformentalhealth #runhappy #lancashire #getmoving #getactive #getgoing #getoutside #getoutdoors #itsgrimupnorth

The heavens reflect our labours. A different view of a recent addition to Scunthorpe town centre. Ray Lonsdales sculpture paying tribute to the towns steel heritage. I should of brought a cloth to give this side a bit o a polish before I took the shot but hey ho...it’s grim up north. ▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️▪️▫️ - - - - #lovegreatbritain #scunthorpesteelworks #thisisnorthlincs #northlincolnshire #ourstoriesnl #rsa_streetview #tv_texture #ipulledoverforthis #instagood #rustlord #rustlord_unity #lifeinanortherntown #itsgrimupnorth #everything_imaginable #instasky #insta_sky_reflection #dontfollowme #ukpotd #osmaps #fiftyshades_of_history #visitengland #instabritain

#itsgrimupnorth . . Well, the weather is today anyway! 10 mins easy, 10 moderate, 10 easy ✅ . . Hands went numb and I didn’t manage to warm up at all but got it done and that’s all that matters!

Well, #manchesterbookclub ‘s thoughts on Love on the Dole were .... not a great deal really ! 🤷🏻‍♀️ . I loved this book . Thought it was well written, thought provoking and very authentic. Others failed to see the funny side and just found it a bit depressing . Not a Christmas stocking filler then ? 😗🤔🎄🎄📚 . . .
First coat of base colour done. Hot Fudge. Much more horse like now.

Hello, Tuesday again! (My first day of work so feels like a Monday) 🌚 I haven’t shown my face on here for a while so there ya go 🙋🏻‍♀️ Went to @lasiguanasquayside last night for a meal with family and it’s SO good! Definitely need to get there more often since it’s very close to home 😄 Tonight I am going to check out Enchanted Parks in Gateshead and can’t wait, it was brilliant last year so expecting fabulous things... look out for stories later 💫
A recent trip to Swinsty reservoir revealed how little rain we’ve had over the autumn, although I’m glad it’s finally raining (as no one wants a drought over Xmas), if it could just stop for a little bit on the weekends so I can enjoy walking and festive activities that would be smashing. . . . . . #swinsty #yorkshire #autumn #swinstyreservoir #fewston #reservoir #harrogate #countryside #northyorkshire #itsgrimupnorth #walks #peaceful #visityorkshire #yorkshirephotographer #englishcountryside #trees #hikingadventures #weekend #woods #getoutdoors #godsowncounty #godsowncountry #exploreyorkshire #autumnscene #leaves #bluesky

Bitterly cold night ride. Ouch.
Undercoat done.
Good Evening Little Donkey.
So the makeshift studio 3 is a go! Thankfully the desk should arrive tomorrow but more than anything I was in awe that there was actual sunshine, in Manchester, in December... Of course this was preceded by 5 hours of rain 🤣 #manchester #studio #homestudio #radio #podcast #primordialradio #itsgrimupnorth
