Out The Way Early

I've decided another resting day is required. My batteries feel like they've got a lot more charge but they certainly ain't full just yet. I'm not unduly concerned about missing the long runs I'd planned. This game is all about the bigger picture. The larger campaign. You have to give away a few small islands to conquer the main land.

The official High Peak Marathon results are still not posted - an annoyance - but I've managed to locate what appears to be a valid set of results, albeit without the check point splits. I'm happy (with a tinge of sadness that we weren't higher placed) to confirm we were indeed 15th, in 10:45:47, less than ten minutes from 13th and only thirty from 5th - and we threw away twenty of those on a navigational hiccup. If only I'd been a tad stronger. If only.....

Anyway, for those interested, here's a link to the (unofficial) results and here they are in full for you:-
