Thank you for posting on the SORE League.
I think Michelle is running Lakes in a Day this weekend which is a very tough 50 mile ultra in the Lake District. So if you are running this, Michelle, I wish you all the best and Andy too if he is running it with you!
Also good luck if you are running the Great Eastern Half Marathon on Sunday.

Thanks Sue. Having looked at the weather forecast earlier in the wwek4and considering staying at home (I get cold very easily) I was talked into giving it a go as the weather was "clearing".
Hummm. Never trust the forecast, trust your own judgement! It was horrendous weather on the hills. 40 + mph gusting winds and driving rain. It was also very soft underfoot. Andy went over as his foot got caught and ended up suffering crippling cramp which destroyed his chances. I was blown over in the wind and then had to wait for Andy so got very cold and decided it was too dangerous for me to stay out in those conditions. I know my body and knowing how cold I was (even with excellent kit) going back up into the wind after the checkpoint would have been foolish. I wouldn't want to put anyone else at risk rescuing me and the next section was over 18 miles back on the peaks.
So a dnf for both of us but do we still get sore points for the 11.5 miles we did?
And the extra 2.1 miles I ran to pick up the car as Andy couldn't walk ;-)
14.5 miles for me today please, up the Baldock Beast route from Tesco.
Well done Michelle for even attempting the Lakes in a Day. You were wise to stop when you did in those conditions. There is always next year! You both will definitely get your points!
