Great, Justruns. I'm also doing FLM. Hope to catch up with you soon!
Wide Load...I'm guessing that was the guy wearing the funky hat! He's great, always standing at the top of the steepest hill in our club races and XC league, giving us encouragement, despite the colourful language he often hears in response
Well done everyone. This is my club race and although I've never raced it before, I've run around it plenty of times in training. The tougher of the two inclines never seems to get any easier no matter how you approach it.
Pootlesnoot, great effort by you. I was a few minutes behind you and had been informed that I was 7th lady at the finish (should have tried harder to hold onto 5th...) so I was rather surprised to note that I'd dropped a couple of places when the first set of results came out, which leads me to think that there was another lady in between us who obviously wasn't.....of that gender I mean. Delighted that you received your rightful prize.
Maybe I'm missing something here but how do the organisers know which entrants haven't shown up in advance of the race start, unless they're going by the number of 'collect number on day' entries they're left with at 10:30 am? I'd have thought that would still mean anyone on the waiting list would have to wait until the race was underway in order to participate....
Congratulations, Sue! Having chatted to you on the Hard Training Thread last year, I'm sure you'll more than meet your goal. Looking forward to following the thread with interest, and hope that your determination and effervescent enthusiasm will get me out of the door during the cold January evenings to come, as your goals are similar to mine.
