Sorry for the late write up. Mrs BC had booked us in for lunch for 12 noon, so no time for posts until now. My post run restaurant brownie was a step up in presentation from my normal; the quinnell of chantilly cream and pistachio was a class above!! Delicious; although I was starving by the time lunch was served so I was really ready to savour anything.
The run? It was sunny, 8c but with a blustery South Westerly wind. As predicted there were some claggy patches, so not ideal (end of excuses). My first 1k has been a bit slow recently so I decided to jog for 5 minutes or so before starting the race. I was glad that I did, as I was immediately confronted with a barbarian hoard running straight at me, social distancing forgotten, clad in footwear ranging from boots to running shoes....I kept out of the way..much better than meeting them on the run. No sign of vitality numbers there.
Eventually I was under starter’s orders and off!!Apart from being snarled at by a tiny white dog of indeterminate breed (doesn’t it know how big MY dog is 🙄 ) the run itself was pretty uneventful. I did keep thinking of VRBs doing their stuff further South which gave me lift, but by halfway I felt that it wasn’t going to be a Pb day, and I was right. 01:03:25 was ok on the day; not bad for an old geezer on a windy morning!! Hope everyone had a great time. Off to look up your posts now 👏👏👏👏👏👏🙂
