Insomnia 2010 - Bedgebury

J and I completed the BHF Insomnia event for the second year running.  We made 5 laps of the 9.5mile circuit in the 12 hours from 20:00 to 08:00.  All but the last lap were in absolute darkness!  Our best time was 1:08 and our worst nearer 1:30.  Total elevation per lap 1,266ft!!!

Needless to say we were both exhausted but had great fun!

UKC Venue Re-Opens

I was invited to the re-opening of my old Uni's nightclub - The Venue - due to being an ex-President.  So, what better than to invite all the Uni girls too (ok, easier than it sounds - am married to one of them!).  It is certainly a lot 'snazzier' than when we were there - but at the same time some of the character has gone.  More pics linked in title...

MBK Ayots

J and I went for a last training run today before the big race at Bedgebury next weekend.  We covered around 16 miles in about 90 minutes.  I feel less prepared for the endurance race this year - but still think I'll be ok.  Must remember to test and charge my lights!

Max - Recovery - Week Two

Max has made a remarkable recovery. He went for a check up at the Vet's on Friday and was told that he can now come out of the cage and roam the house as normal. He walks well, although still looks a little drunk. However, he managed to navigate the stairs in both directions which is very good. He is expected to make further improvements over the coming weeks/months but in all he is in very much better shape :)
