In after being a very moody and unsociable individual from 00:01 to 01:20 two nights ago, but I did get in, so the mood brightened considerably (as did the alcohol consumption) and went to bed a happy (and fat and unfit!) runner four hours later, having also cooked 21 kids pizzas (from scratch) and a four course New Year's Eve dinner for 25 people that evening.
Diet and training start tomorrow... Happy New Year all!
Well said, Massive - huge shout out to the trumpeter at cow bell corner above Waunfawr, she must have been playing for ages, as Mrs RJ went past over an hour after me, and she was still going!! I felt it my duty to clap as loudly as I could all the way until the trumpet went our of earshot. Brilliant event as normal, fantastic support from residents, marshals, families and especially kids with sweets, drinks, gels and encouragement.
Lovely to catch up with SS for lots of tea, coffee and food at Y Pantri both days, Brer before and after the race, TRex after his first lap, and FOOW for a lovely hug and chat at the finish. 3:46 for my 10th SNOD, reasonably happy but two and a half minutes slower than last year. Good times and experiences from everyone so far. How about a post race report from TRex??
