QO event, Lydeard Hill, Blue, 5.2km / 280m
Walking to car to meet Peter Dobra (UBOC), i was "ill". (ie. sinuses) . Didn't feel "rotten" today, tho (major plus).
You can't drop out of something that late - so drove in ever more awful conditions to the Quantocks, wind, mud, rain, mist, utterly vile.
The course was tough, but Ok; one mistake really, no 13, too far right (west). climb to misty moor & no definite ap no 12 - 30 seconds. Passed Peter at no 10.
Bit of a "burn up" at the end with a young lass in SWJS top (Lizzie Horsler?), took a while to reel her in and then she certainly tried to race me - she got ahead at last control but missed it, so i finished 30 secs or so ahead.... as we raced to a fence crossing at full pelt. a bloke ahead decided to SIT ON TOP OF THE CROSSING to decide his next route. "GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!!" I yelled as I ran up the haybale, and he was so shocked he nearly fell off, was most funny!!! "Not the best place to stop for a rest mate!" I said, before adding "no worries". Great God.
See how the next few days go. NO MIDWEEK RUN FROM HOME FOR ME.
