Did you get your mudfest, TE?
That's a pity about Nemo DBI, but I suppose inevitable. I suppose as long as he can still do something he will be happy. I don't suppose he could become a Bionic Dog.
The Huntington Chase was very enjoyable, particularly as the sun shone down on us and the wind wasn't too keen even out on the wilds of Hergest Ridge. Us walkers were sent off at 11.00, and the runners at 12.00, - not sure about the cyclists and horses; usually the cyclists set off just ahead of the runners, and the horses last but with instructions about where they may, or may not, overtake those on foot or on wheels. It was getting on for 2 hours before people started overtaking the walkers, but then lots came past. Two of the men cyclists were in drag, - one completely in bright red, from a long curly red wig down to shiny boots, via a flimsy skirt and tights. The other sped past me on his bike and all I saw of him was his back (long white-blonde hair streaming behind, and little white shorts) - it wasn't until we were all back in the village that I saw him properly and realised he was a bloke.
Today I did 3.1 miles at 9 mins run, 1 min walk. Knee niggled, but no more than a niggle.
