I am mad. When I woke up at 6.30am (BST) I decided to sack off the Barn's Breen Half Marathon and head for Minehead. I ran the Exmoor Stagger, a 14 Mile event over mud, rocks and styals in 2hrs 33. I felt ok at the end, the terrain was treacherous and when I passed 7 miles in 1-25 I thought I'd struggle to break 3 hours! The wind was battering, as as we got to the top of the highest point I did feel quite nauseous through only being in shorts and vest with the wind and sleet battering me everywhere. Still I only fell over once, didnt break any ankles and I can say I have done it! My last 2 miles were run in 15 mins as well!

Of course you are absolutely barking mad, but then so are the rest of us - enjoy the company.

We had the gales but without the sleet, I don't envy you I think I might have wussed out if it had been too wet yesterday

Big respect Jeffsy - but Nick is right, you are absolutely barking

Thanks. I know I am. I had nothing better to do on Sunday.

Glad you enjoyed the run. Maybe you'll change your profile and add long gut busting off road races in shitty weather instead of wussy 5ks

Well done Jeffsy! Having run this race in the past I have much respect for you doing it in Sunday's weather conditions and especially after driving all that way. Great event though, don't you think?
