Mist Mountain Tops

An early morning run along the banks of the River Isar, taking in the autumnal landscapes and fresh mountain air. I’ve begun to set off early on a Sunday morning to go for long runs before breakfast, as I find its suits me better than filling myself up before I set out on the track. From my home door I can literally join the riverbank path within five minutes before I have to decide, left or right?  Today it was left heading up river towards the Jachenau Valley. Wherever I run I am lucky to be surrounded by mountains, but that sometimes means heading up hill, but I leave that for the mountain bike on most occasions.

Following the riverbank

Passing the churchyard, I run on a small track down to the river, the form of Breakneck is ever present in the background. Following the track south towards the Austria border the path crosses the river via the road bridge and takes me toward Leger a small hamlet south of the Isar Valley. This is my turning point today, I turn back at the water sluice a place crowed by swimmers in summer, this morning its quiet and I am the only one here.

The Jachenau water sluice

The opposite side of the river brings me back to the River bridge in Lenggries, its a chance to run through the village past the railway station and home for breakfast. An hour an a half and 15km behind me it’s time to relax and stretch out the legs.
