Got lost!

Two things got lost recently. My new Nathan Sports Handheld Insulated Race Bottle, in the post, and Me, at the Lakeland Trails Half Marathon this weekend – proper write up to follow. Also, this weekend, I’m heading out with WTR again and will try to write that up asap too! Maybe doing RTTK in two…

Wild Trail Runners – Leatherhead 20km

I always lay out my kit beforehand, it makes for an easier morning, a more organised brain and a less hectic process. I played guitar for Sid Batham (check him out, trust me) at Brighton’s The Great Escape festival last night, returned home, rechecked my kit and crawled into bed, ears ringing at 2am.
