The storm came up so very quick
It couldn't have been much quicker.
I should have brought my hat along,
I should have brought my slicker.
My hair is wet, me feet are wet,
I couldn't be much wetter.
I fell into the river once
But this is even better.

The day before, Richard ran the KM vertical, which is pretty much what it claims to be - a (just over) 1 KM distance for 1 KM accent. Now that's pretty steep!

As ever, our and everyone else's sporting efforts were supported by Papy Bob, who got approximately 4 hours sleep all weekend. It's thanks to him and a whole team of other volunteers that these races can take place. For me it's pay it back time so I've signed up as a volunteer for the up coming Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, and will be working in my s.i.l's team. I've wanted to do this for a while but either the kids were to small or Richard was himself participating, so when my m.i.l decided this she didn't fancy helping out the organization this year, I jumped in to take her place.
