I worked from home during g the day then caught the tube to Morden to meet sandy for the Jurassic. We drove down. And stopped at a Thai pub which was nice. We got to the sea dog cottage on Portland about 9 and found cava and stuff waiting for us in the fridge. We went to the cove house inn and had two beers and sandy had a deßert while we listened to a local folk band. We watched some Netflix the girl with the dragon tattoo it was not that good.

Up and we walked about a km from. The cottage to the marine centre where the new base was. We got breakfast and met Frances and her two friends over breakfast. But me and sandy jumped i to the first van and they had to catch the bus to the start which meant it took a bit longer. We met Mr knee at the start who was suffering so i ran with him for a couple of miles. But the. Had to catch sandy. We did ok on the hills at the start. But the mud was again a problem. I managed to keep my socks dry though which was good. We avoided the long beach section unfortunately Frances and her crew didn’t so they were very late in. Myself and sandy had a pint in the country e inn but it was to busy to eat so we got lots of Chinese. We watched your highness and Ted the movie while back g some beers.

We got up to run with group 1, this meant getting up at what would have been 4.30am. before the clocks went back. We were some of the first to register. We met all but Malcolm who was being looked after i. The very busy medical tent. We got the coach to lulworth cove,. And me Frances and Sandy set off together. It was very windy and i was having difficulty keeping my hat on till Frances leant me her spare buff. I was also continually producing snot due to the almost continuous headwind. Group 1 was quite competitive we saw the same faces back and forth all day. We managed to stop a few folks going wrong. Frances got a bit of a shock at the steps. And we introduced her to sandy”s gate of Doom. It took a while but eventually the summer. Came out and i was able to take my gloves of and the old. My fleece a bit. The last few miles were a bit of a struggle for Sandy and a few people from group2 went past us. But with the help of baywatch and rocky we got to the finish i. Time to get straight into a minibus. We set off from the centre just after 5 and after one quick stop i was back at morden for 8.30 pm thanks to Google
