Lightwater Valley played host again, a windy day saw lorries overturned on the A1, an early warning I may have to lose some pace to avoid being blown over.
Amber and Christine formed the ladies team (4 to count). Christine went for a ‘hoody wrap to warm her behind’ look, while amber opted for the ‘why am I doing this’ look……..ladies doing 1 short and 2 big laps. The going wasn’t too bad underfoot, although a bit of headwind on parts of the course.
The men’s team were sweating that I would have to count to make up the team, but thankfully ‘Terminator’ Marlow made the start with 5 mins to spare, citing lack of flag for poor timekeeping. It was pointed out that it’s all very well having a flag with nobody to look after it…….the case continues.
Collo, Winter, Goodair, Marlow, Pearce (D), Guttridge made up the team of 6, with me making up the B team (in weight alone). I really do get value for money and 1 short and 4 big laps meant I could see everyone lap me before continuing on a solo last lap with the tail enders. The Brownlee’s were a no show.
Another character building cross country, we don’t know why we do it, but we love it when we have…..
Results attached. Next up is the Northerns at Ponte Racecourse on 24th Jan. If I was a horse, I’d be shot, so could be interesting.
