'Site-B' has evil hills (it feels like lots of them), and I'm sure they don't go down as much as they go up.
|Looking down an evil hill|
Well on the second lap all the yuckness of the cold for the last two weeks caught up and decided to sit on my chest ... not good - oh and my headset died (sadly my Sony Walkman does seem sensitive to sweat - much badness)
As I was slowing down to recover, another runner Matt stepped in did a huge amount of motivational support and refused to let me slow down and keep breathing ... and it worked.
I really do owe him a lot today, as the motivational element kept me going, and he reduced his placing just to ensure I finished.
Thanks again Matt.
