Howard’s Steve Parr round. Expected to be doing a night run as we were expecting him to come in about 4am so I set off at 1am from Kendal to pick up Jacob Tonkin from Thirlmere and get to Keswick to meet Dan and get over to Buttermere for 3am. We went back up to Newlands for signal to check the tracker and realised he was slowing down and would be more like 7-9am. Attempted to sleep for a bit in Dans car at Newlands lay-by for a few hours before driving back down where Mags found us and we went and met the rest of the crew just up the road. Went for toast and a hot chocolate at the cafe as he was now due about 11am. Was having a good time so didn’t really mind to much at all. And the run was just full on bants definitely the rudest one so far and very clear skies a bit chilly on the tops but warm enough the rest of the time. Awesome day out. Howard’s body was passed broken but still kept it moving made sure he ate all his snickers and bananas and drank all his coke and water. 118 miles total absolutely mental.
