SPOOK relays with Andy Simpson, team "UNdy Murray"
legs 1,3,5. very cold - wore hat, gloves, cagoule, two layers on legs etc.
Mass start saw me totally dropped by nearly everyone. then found myself behind super fit hungover Martin ward, and next to OMM elite finisher Kim Baxter. After i scurried past her, she wisely said, come on, ease off Phil! I immediately obliged & stood still for about a minute (wrong control).
Leg 2 was better, one small error meaning i was again ahead of martin & Kim. Tho Martin again got me. He's too fit! I'm too shit!
Leg 3 was fun (set off just behind Chappers; & led him astray -him not me! ), but Martin really put me away across the moor and Kim was reeling me in. Undy nearly had Marky on the last leg, but we was robbed by a far last control! :-)
Great day, despite weather / cold, and very very well matched teams! CHarlie's (Adams & Ward) were too fast but i think we were ahead of Baxters, and the Jubb/Chappers team, but lost to Hayman/Ward by about 3 seconds.
Very wheezy in between legs - cold air rather than me being actually pathologically ill.
Only last two legs recorded here. https://www.strava.com/activities/1292581610#kudos
