Two Breweries

23rd September 2006
18 miles, 5200ft

Easily my worst race of the year so far. Finished almost 35 minutes slower than last year in by far my slowest ever time with 3:43:26. I knew something was seriously wrong at Glenrath. After crossing Manor Water I realised that the wheels had fallen off, and braced myself for a long slow painful trudge to the end. Descending from Dead Wives Grave I was feeling so rubbish I was half thinking of packing it in at Stobo, but then again this wouldn't serve any useful purpose, and I wasn't keen to get into the habit of dropping out of races. So after a minute or so of quiet despair at Stobo I decided to continue at more or less walking pace from there to the end.
