today saw the first official outing of our c2c team...me, richard, guy and his nibs
i guess we've all got different experiences behind us so today was hopefully there as a good taster for each of us regardless of what we'd done previously
in the end it was a belting day..crisp blue skies, warm (relatively) in the sun, chilly in the shade, running on everything from ice to snow drifts to rocks to mud.the lot really
we did a 5.5 hr trip from macc forest up to shuttlingsloe, over to the cat n fiddle, round goyt valley, down to lambaload reservoir and back to base. a cracking, if challenging, outing and one to set the context for certainly the first few days of the c2c.
to cut to the quip..all returned well having enjoyed a top time though i'm struggling to see charlie make the big week
and with that piece of news, though not new i guess, i'm questioning my running going forwards. he's been my inspiration and it might just be that i take the lad on runs of say 3 hrs max..and with that i may end my ultras and just run as the free spirit im becoming..doing what i like when i like..but with his nibs
in the meantime, i cant really let the two-legged side down as i was the one who suggested it in the first place!
should have kept my big gob shut!!
