Now normally on a Sunday morning the weather doesn't really bother me as I potter about the house, but this morning I was racing and the weather mattered greatly! The race was a challenging 9 mile course from Congleton in Cheshire around Bosley Cloud ( The Cloud ). The Cloud itself is actually owned by the National Trust and has fantastic views over Cheshire. We were advised that 'full body cover' was required which always indicates it may be a tough race and the thought of facing it in heavy rain and the forecasted sleet and snow showers didn't make me feel any happier as I got ready.
I love being out in the countryside and running these type of races allows me to explore parts of Cheshire I've never been to before. It makes me feel alive!!
I can't say that I wasn't elated to see the finish and know that it was finally over, but all in all it was a good run and not as bad as I had feared.....and the best bit was that I came back with both my trail shoes and didn't lose either in the thick mud! So now for the rest of the day I'm putting my feet up, picking up my knitting bag and definitely NOT MOVING!
Goodbye for nowFleur xx
