at last

i thought this day would never come. just finished a 12 day stint at the workhouse, my reward, 3 days of fun and adventure in the fells.

this should have been the weekend of my attempt at the bg but i've finally got over that and am really looking forward to being a (small) part of iain's. as he has much more eloquently put it, as is tradition it's going to be a great day out in the hills with old friends and new. i can't wait.

our busy 'itinerary' revolves mainly around running and beer drinking. friday will see us out with vikki exploring the duddon valley. then to keswick to see off the bg runners. the evening in the pub with anyone who isn't running/pacing a bg. saturday, we'll catch up with the runners again and have a lovely run back to keswick. and then to the pub. sunday is about celebrating a birthday and retirement with jane's family. this will probably lead to time on the fells as well as the pub.

best get packing...

Kate, sorry to have missed you. I ended up doing leg 4 on friday so camped down in Wasdale so I could go on to do legs 4 and 5 for Karl hence missing you at Honister!

It was a lovely day indeed but I was very remiss and failed to take many photo's - I shall have to enjoy yours instead!
