This Saturday I decided to start with my Stellenbosch Mountain challenge. I ran from my house, all the way to the abandoned house without stopping - a decent 250m climb in about 1.5km. I then headed up Stellenbosch mountain, all the way to the first peak - about 4km into the run. It was a beautiful winter's day for trail running. Next time I'll  extend this run to the second peak!
