Brilliant event with excellent marshal support, as always. I liked the new route too. As for 'Tom Potson', he was on form with the running commentary, until his microphone went all Normal Collier on him. Didn't take him long to get it fixed though.
Can't wait for next year. This is one race I never miss.
spen, get well soon. hope the op goes OK. Looking on the bright side, an enforced rest has come at the right time for the Christmas wind-down. Start afresh next year.
sp, good to hear from you. Have a good one at Brecon 40. Give my regards to CD please.
DE, hope Clare's OK and recovering well now. It sounds as though you're doing well balancing your fitness schedule with family commitments, although I'm sure a 30-hour day would help as well. It would me anyway.
Famous Grouse went well for me. I chased that up with Gravy Pud fell race the following week (Sunday just gone), with Parkruns every Saturday to try and regain the edge (I'm still 1 minute off PB ). I've got Stockport 10 coming up on Sunday and - something more appropriate for an ULTRA thread - Tour de Helvellyn on the 21st.
