It was back to the hill again, with a slightly iffy knee, and wearing rainjacket, hat and gloves as the weather window was nowhere to be seen. The gloves came off in the first 1km, and the jacket at about 1.2km. I took route 1 through the puddles on the plateau which meant that 1km from home both shoelaces came undone (even though I had tied them the ‘wrong’ way) and with a descent to come I stopped and retied them. My right shoe came undone again with 400m to go, but I was determined to stay ahead of Roger and just kept going, finishing in the 25minutes (grr).
I finished 82nd out of 193 parkrunners, was 7th lady and 2nd in my age category. I am miraculously still second in the points table.
