-4 ° centigrade

Got a text tonight from the running club:

"Happy New Year to you all. Bad news I'm afraid, no club run tonight, just too cold. Sorry for the late notice"

I sniggered to myself, what a load of big girls blouses, the lot of them, it was just a month ago that my buddy G and I were running the Doyen of the Downs at -4 ° centigrade, cracking ice with our heels and running in the marshes to the north of Arundel.

It is only now that I am beginning to really take on board the enormity of our accomplishment and the true grit we and our fellow competitors showed in finishing that fine race. Take a look at the photos on Extreme Running website and just look at the beautiful haw frost and the smiles and look of the runners competing...not a blouse in sight
