Rab Mini Mountain Marathon, 09/01/11 Hayfield
|Bit Chilly. Just bellow Kinder Low|
Team ibuprofens first run of 2011, the Rab Mini MM from Hayfield run by Dark and White Events. It was great to get out again but a bit of a shock. I think we had both gone a bit soft over the festive period and our brains had become addled with the Christmas cheer.
The race was a mix of, hitting the controls spot on and headless chicken mode, stumbling about and running wrong way.
Lots of could of, should of, would of's. Which after chatting with others, appears to be what most of us non elite shufflers think of our performances.

Reading this write-up on the Dark & White site, it looks like we weren't the only ones that struggled in the low cloud that was cloaking the Swines Back area of Kinder. One poor soul ended up in Edale which was several grid squares off the map.
