Went over to Darwen this morning for a run with Simon and Dave The Builder. The David Staff memorial fell race is next weekend so this was a recce for Dave’s benefit. Seemed like a good opportunity to get some quality running in, so off I went. Winter arrived this morning too – the horizontal rain and wind combined with the (close to) freezing temperatures made it a bit uncomfortable on the tops, I lost feeling in my face and my hands. Note to self: take a hat next time.

Still, it was an hour and 20 mins well spent.
