Royal Signal Relays 2013
Ran in the all conquering Morpeth vets team yesterday...well all conquering the bronze that is.
The Royal Signals Relays 2013 - 300 athletes. Six legs, each 2.3 miles long - Paced it well and delivered my 5th leg at around 5:33 pace - didn't think I was quite up to that; Top lad Terry Wall was running last leg for us, but we didn't count on the Steve Cairnsmeister also running the last leg for Tyne Bridge and they snaffled the silver. There was only around 40 seconds between us and winners North Shields, but pretty good all the same to get some silverware.
A late night with friends and some wine saw me laughing away the damage and consequently only managed a bleary 8 miler today. All in all a good weekend, apart from the bike, that is!
