Lambs Longer Leg 2013

The weather was being watched by the whole of the Fell running fraternity,

Would it snow... wouldn't it snow..... it didn't and we had glorious sunshine!

I have made the trip up for this one for a few years and with to being the first counter in the Hayfield Champs, wanted to make the trip again. Planning to do the series this year.

Opened the curtains and its was a hard frost but no snow, so packed up teh car and went to pick Richard Pegram up from Wirksworth on the way up to Hayfield.

The usual faces had made the trip, nice to see Stuart Bond back racing proper and great to see some other great friends.

Find this one really tough as never ever get enough training up hill like the start, a great fast bash up, round and back, LAMB'S LONGER LEG (3.1m/950') is a real slog, as a race it hurt a lot!

Please can i have some new lungs, the cold air left me coughing like a smoker!

Managed to bag a PB knocking 3mins 38 seconds of last years time, so proper chuffed with that as a start to the season!! And well done to Richard P, who also knocked 1m 13 seconds of his PB.

Good effort, Martin. It was certainly a good day to be running in the hills.
