Some Stuff About Me ......

My photo
I live in Harrogate, North Yorkshire with my wonderful wife and soul-mate Helen. I have two incredible sons - Evan and Matthew - who are occasionally show up at home, usually when they're hungry or need money. The three of them are the best thing that ever happened to me and I love them all. I spent over 24 years in the Royal Navy, but since I packed it all in and got a proper job my life has gone from strength to strength and I've never looked back. I am a die-hard soul music fan and this remains a serious passion, but in recent years my life has been dedicated to running on the fells and trails of Northern England, it's what I was made for. Please read about my adventures and experiences ...

Round Hill Fell Race & Baggy Heads

Woke up feeling a bit tired and under the weather today, however turned out for what was my first crack at our local fell race ... God knows why I haven't done this before, I'm frequently running up and around this area so will have to put this down to my own foolishness in missing it. Didn't have that good a race, truth be told, went off a bit fast and paid for it. Had little fight in me for a hard run to the end, although there is a fast finish to be had. This race has a good, steady climb but is actually more akin to a trail race, have to say it is very boggy in places. Here's what Mr Garmin has to say about the whole thing:

None of it, Martin! That's a great time for that distance and elevation and the course looks great. IF I can ever shift this injury, I'd love to do that kind of race. I love tracks and hills but, as you know, the navigation demon holds me back. Is this one simple to navigate for numpties??

Really simple Jackie ... hard to get lost, truth be told.
