 Race Records
Although not officially proven I doubt whether as many other people fell over as many times during the Borrowdale race this year as I did. I put it down to trying to go too fast, others may suggest a lack of co-ordination and stupidity.
 Favourite Races
Every race I have done has had some kind of special appeal be it on grounds of size, the nature of the course or the scenery. However, being a lover of all things Lakeland I would have to plump for the Borrowdale. The weekend in Rosthwaite just seemed to revolve around the race and you were felt you were part of something special.
 Most Memorable Race
Borrowdale and Two Breweries stand out. Borrowdale for the atmosphere and the fact it was the only race where I spilt blood (misplaced rock on the Corridor Route - could have sworn it wasn't there when I was last there in 2004) and Two Breweries for it feeling like the hardest race I had done, those ascents of Hundlescope and Trahenna still make me wake up at night with cramp. However, like any long race once you finish them all the pain and bad memories disappear.
 Other Interests
Reputedly I have a wife and three teenage daughters who I see from time to time but think I am completely mad consoling themselves that I could have chosen ballroom dancing as a way of getting over my supposed mid-life crisis. My training partner is a 6 year old border collie who if I had legs and stamina like him I would be world champion by now. Whisper it but I have supported QPR for 35 years through thin and thin
