|Steering is made more difficult when running with your eyes closed.|
I did not feel very well after having a hydrogel at the start and definitely did not enjoy the long climb.
|Eyes wide shut. Still.|
But I was rewarded mid way with a gorgeous view down to Macclesfield and the rest of the race was very nice , steadily flat and downhill, and at least that made me run quicker.
Instead of the goody bag you got an ale or a cider .....- not happy with my time, but might do again with prior training to master the dreaded hill part - and hope some more striders are coming to join me next year.
