Report from the Hon. Handicapper
Early confidence of a decent finish quickly evaporated as I felt a persistant ‘pain in the backside‘ after just a couple minutes of running. This reduced my aim to just making it to the finish without the pain getting any worse. I managed to do that so it’s a case of forgetting it and on to the next one…
The course was held round the fields just north of the Beckett Park track and was mostly firm underfoot and next to no hills to mention, so lots of fast running. Leon passed me on the second lap and Antonio made up the numbers for Otley.
