Cumbria, or the area known as the English Lake District, was an amazing first stop upon arrival in England. Before, during, and after the Lakeland Trails Coniston Marathon I ran on July 6th, I was simply astounded by the terrain and views of the area, and I was lucky to have my camera available before and after the run.
The day following the marathon, Davinia’s dad took us on a small road trip all around the Lake District, with stops in Barrow-in-Furness, Kirkstone Pass, Glenridding, and, as a perfect post-marathon walk, Easedale Tarn by way of Grasmere. The rocky green hills and lakes were awesome to see, and definitely got me excited for my indefinite time here in England.
