Ten years ago, during some training run banter when I was running with Ilkley Harriers, one of the "fellrunners" suggested I should run a fell race some time. I said I would if he would do a road race and by the end of the run an Easter "3 races in 3 days challenge" was on the cards......at least in my mind!
My teammate thought I wasn't being serious and failed to run any events but the idea had got into my mind and I determined to do it.
So having run the Salford 10K on the Friday (37.04) followed by the Rivington Pike fell race on the Saturday I lined up for the multi-terrain Guiseley Gallop 10K race on Easter Sunday and ran in a very tired 42.37.
The following year, 2003, I opted to miss the Saturday race out, running the Salford in 38.13 followed by a near repeat at the Gallop of 42.47.
But time takes a toll and nowadays after Friday's 10K it was all I could do to jog 3 miles on Saturday and the 4 yesterday wasn't much easier. Very tired again ...after just ONE race.
Yesterday then, Easter Sunday, Pat and I attended the Gallop to give support and in doing so did a bit of filming. Hope you enjoy.............
