Quite a few races where you can cut corners or take short cuts, esp if you know the locality.
Had one woman in one race, year after year, who always starts at the front. It's hm+ distance. I always start at the back but still pass her quite quickly. This race used to have a style at about the mile and a half point which caused quite a bottle neck but runners were good natured and queue. Except, that is, for this woman, who always pushed to the front of the queue and didn't wait her turn. Which was just good manners really. So what happens? Everyone who was in front of her (having had quite a nice rest) has to make their way past her again. Why she does this year on year I'll never know. It's a chip timed race so if she was after a course best she'd be better off starting further back.
Well, I have spent so long trying to sort everything out this morn that it is now rather late. So, do I cycle over to the land today and do a bit of fart arsing or do I wait 'til Fri, when I may have my atv (new toy Mr. P. - finally), and take 'stuff' over to the land so I can do some real mans work.
The second option will allow me to go swimming this afternoon. Maybe running this eve and I can pop down to Wickes this morn and buy a wheel barrow.
(I understand that small may just have fallen off her chair at that last bit).
Sorry about your mum small, hope she recovers well. Well done on the run KJ - thought I'd posted yesterday, clearly not.
