Failed to mention:

November: DNF in head to head v Andy
(albeit you were crippled by an injury acquired in a heroic manner).

Have a better start to 2016

He has. Victory over Tim T and me (by 10 min) in Malham fell race. Bring on the orienteering. ..

He should rest up now, bring out the cotton wool for the next 11 months.

I've avoided him at fell races since I beat him at one (I can't believe I just typed that, but my distant memory says its true - Shap or Trunce or something else shortish ?)...

Funnily enough Nov Classic, whilst a social highlight, wasn't a sporting notable for me last year. Happy new year, Undy!!!! I think you & Will Robbins had me in a 50 minute race over the Manchester-ish side of the pennines once.... 1987? ;)

Resting up now for sure. OUCH.

Whilst I'm pleased with my Malham fell race, both Tim & Charlie have gone *much* faster than me on that course in the past; Tim's been injured and done no real training, & Chas was only taking it as a good long run, by the looks of things. The main memory is watching 19 year old Mike A. running away from me with effortless ease; I'd been expecting it, but to see it 1st hand was .... decisive.

Catching & dropping Neil Northrop near the end was a buzz, and not one I could have anticipated. Sorry Neil if you're reading this! ..... I was also hammered by young Pedley; Mike was telling me to catch him! Couldn't!

Bring on the O. Or maybe not.....
