respectthestupidityYou ran on a fell, and enjoyed it. You can call yourself a fell runner.
Boothy......and wallow in Richard Askwith`s book - Feet in the Clouds.
johndfunny. i too have wondered when you become a fell runner. I occasionally go to the lakes and there is simply nothing more engaging than embarking up a hill. Living in a flattish place i try to find some hills prior to visiting the lakes, just so i can enjoy a few decent runs there. Its also fun to see walkers reactions as you run past. they clearly think your mad / amazingly fit. and you know my view is you dont have to be `amazingly fit` to enjoy running in the hills. Just do some prepration for this terrain, and pace yourself. I also never worry to much about stopping for a minute to enjoy the views!
I fell once, running. Does that count?
Did this race as my first fell race last year, took me nearly an hour and a half, thats when you know it is fell running.
Will be doing the race again on Sunday :)
I'm excited I'm back up to the fells this weekend and will be racing. I am most looking forward to the cairn, where the decent startsand the last marshal stands. From there it is up to you on the route down, disengage brain and whoooa!!!
All this for £3 and the best medal in world, great humour and excellent beer...and a cracking game of quoits
Choisty, you're so excited about the fells, I think it's defo BG for the 40th!!!!
Choisty's doing the BG for his birthday?....wahay!
Not yet, but it may be a big year of challenges...Berlin (sub 2:40)...London (sub 2:45)...BG...Coast to Coast I just need a divorce, must stop being nice and taking Mrs C away and buying flowers and running so she doesn't have to talk to me...oh and making her laugh by running 400m hurdles
Choisty that sounds like and awesome year. I am getting someone nudging me about BG next year :-)
