The Spine, 268 miles running along the Pennine Way, the perfect winter holiday?


This weekend at 8am Saturday 11th is the start of The Spine 'Britain's most brutal race' 


You can view the progress LIVE on the following link

Imagining the crisp snow beneath my feet, clear blue skies, cold and still weather for just one week in January, perfect. What could be better? OR maybe it'll be howling winds, 15 hours of darkness, horizontal rain, perishingly cold and wet, the ground boggy and soft, sapping every bit of life out of the legs who knows?
I'm looking forwards to learning a lot and gaining an experience of a lifetime. 
The plan is to move as efficiently as possible with minimal stoppage time, making the most of daylight, weather and energetic spurts! Looking forwards to destroying a carvery towards the back end of next week!
