Getting up at 5am in the morning is always a challenge for me but it was well worth it when I was out in the beautiful Capaia Wine Estate vineyards doing their first ever trail run. I seem to go through phases with my running and at the moment I am just beginning to get fit again, slowly. Anyway, I entered the 10km run which was two loops of 5kms around the farm. As with most trail runs there were some steep hills, but the rest of the run meandered through the autumn coloured vines which made up for the climbs and the mist below completed the picture. The restaurant, Mariella’s, looked homely and perfect for a Sunday lunch.
