December 6th (Constitución) and 8th (Inmaculada) are public holidays in Spain. Not in the Netherlands of course so I’m the only family member working today. I got up at the normal time and took advantage of the dearth of breakfasts and snackboxes to prepare to get the run out of the way.
Gorgeous if chilly morning down on the Paseo, well wrapped doggers and runners my only companions.
94km to go.
