I really enjoyed it again this year. It was good to meet up with so many friends again and get to climb Snowdon on Sunday and take the Electric Mountain tour on Monday.
I wasn't too surprised to get my second slowest time in 10 with 4:26:09 gun time considering I hadn't run Round Rotherham the week before, so the body had forgotten what proper running's all about. A 13.5 mile fell run and parkruns in the lead-up simply can't cut the mustard. I'll be back to normal next year with the Round Rotherham again.
Checking my statistics I suffered the usual monstrous positive split - 1:57:01 first half and 2:29:08 second half. I lost 403 places between 13 miles and 23 miles (where I always lose them) and gained 81 from 23 miles to the finish (where I always gain). I still bear the scabs and scars from the first fall on the final descent.
I hardly took any photos on the day but what I did take is here.
Roll on next year.
