Lantern Pike Fell Race 2007

Skye competed in her first fell race on Saturday at Hayfield Sheepdog trials.

Competing in the Under 8s at the age of 5 she didn't win. 10 minutes of running up and down a hill with straw bales by the side of the fences, so the kids could get over. Skye said she really enjoyed it.

Last year when I did the (adult) race I vowed I'd never do a fell race again.

Anyway at 2pm I was there on the start line, not having run since April, and still retaining the fuzziness from the previous night's red wine.

The pain was incredible. Though amazingly at the end I was 2 minutes faster than last year.

No doubt I'll be back again next year.....

New Camera

I've just got my paws on a new camera. A Canon G7.

It took ages to come to a decision on which camera to buy. I wanted something small, yet with some manual controls.

I know the G9 has just come out, but this was substantially cheaper.

Early pics suggest I got a bargain.
