Day 156 - First 10 mile so was quietly wishing 1 hour 30 mins but would have settled for anything less than 1.40. The course was reported to be hilly so didn't really know what to expect . As it turned out it was all country lanes and a cracking route, felt more like being on a trail at times. The finnish was down hill except for the last 200 yards, hooked up with a Scottish guy for the last mile and a half , he pulled me up the last couple of hills and I pulled him downhill as he was slower down bank. Great race and very happy with my time not sure what the official time is but should be close to my watch.
