In an attempt to keep up the momentum, I went to the LEI event at Snibston and the HOC one at Hilltop. Considering I still feel tired from last week, my back still aches and it’s an effort to walk to the shops, I seem to manage quite well once I put the O shoes on. Similarly enthused by the Welsh experience, Catherine came with me both times and was rewarded by making new friends both times. At Snibston, she persuaded me to go to the post-race pubbage and I was rewarded with free pie. 🙂

I haven’t run at Hilltop for 15 years and I didn’t remember it at all. John Bennison’s been updating the map and put on a good event in the recently rediscovered summer sunshine. 🙂 As for the racing, Hilltop is probably the better area, though it’s fair to say thay Snibston has an interesting variety of terrain…
