Unfortunately was a DNF at Hawick. Waaaay too cold. Never raced in colder conditions. Five taken to hospital post-race so happy with decision. Ran the first lap but had no feeling in my arms or face. Was definitely looking to join the hypothermia crew if I'd carried on. Live to fight another day!
Going back a bit.....road shoes all the way for the Dirty 30.....the 6 miles of tarmac along Loch Duich and the 4 miles to the finish bomb out any thoughts of trail shoes! The mud in the forest isn't tamed by any trail shoe!
Cragchick/Elspeth...will see you both at the Dirty 30. A few niggles mean the wife and I will just be taking the Dirty Dozen option then manning the Moyle checkpoint until about 4pm. Forecast looks good for it!
