Kentmere Horsehoe Fell Race.
Travelled down the night before with Housewife Ward and stayed with Claire Allison. Fun evening dining and drinking and catching up. Perhaps a little too much to drink....
Discovered late on that the race started at 1pm so a perfect opportunity for a lie in followed by a hearty breakfast a la Claire.
Hundreds of folk in the race and Claire and I rather foolishly started too near the back and spent the first 30 minutes of the race blocked on tiny paths behind punters. Once on the tops things improved and I felt quite good. Pushing the pace well but slightly hampered by the left hip flexor (leg lift). Anyway, sunny day, glorious views, great underfoot conditions (nice and soft for the most) meant a great run.
Had hoped for about 2 hours but the slow start put paid to that. I finished well, overtaking on the downhills and the undulating track to the finish.
No cramp! Lovely cool river to wallow in.
Run 31:00 
Paper shop run. Down through holmehill, round Laigh Hills then across Barbush to cemetary and papershop then home. For a day of wood slicing!
