I'll be setting off as soon after 2pm as I can manage. Journey takes me 2.5 hours. I'll go straight to the cottage and run down from there to get registered and meet everyone in Y Pantri for 6pm. I'll need to get some running in the legs before the race; haven't had a chance to run a step since last Saturday's Round Rotherham trudge. Sir John, I'll give you a call when I arrive so we can link up.
T Rex, I suspect my food might have been removed from the list because the buffet's off the menu. I'll make do with whatever's available. I'm easy - a gut bucket.
This will be my 9th consecutive SNOD. I'm looking forward to the mild, dry, breezy conditions. What's with the talk of rain or bad forecast? I only see dryness from now until well after it's all over.
I have my thinly cushioned trail shoes at the ready with an eye to a spot of fell racing towards the end. I love those final few miles. It's the only time I get to overtake.
