Ugly... but quite fast
Handsome, no? I like to play for the cameras, as might have been clear from the Standard article. Bit more Joker than James Bond this time though...
Competed in the Hard as Snails 10k last Saturday, an event to raise money for the Surrey Wildlife Trust. Very beautiful run on the North Downs, past St Martha's Chapel. A nice reminder that you don't have to go very far out of London to get a bit of semi-wilderness, and some great views. And best part was I pulled off a top 10 finish, completing the course in under 42 minutes, which given the size of the hills was a really good result. Given that I'd done over 100 miles on the bike, plus short run and swim the day before, it was a good boost to the confidence - speed and endurance both seem to be getting positive effect.
Good thing too, with only 6 weeks to go!
