Three of us ran this race, myself, Jayne Morley and Shirley Jones. We met up early Sunday morning and set off for Bromsgrove.  I’m usually quite proud of my navigational skills but I have to say I was bettered on the day by Jayne’s gentleman friend, Tom Tom (so good they named him twice!) Jayne nicknamed him ‘Tim nice but dim’ and I can see why, he hadn’t got much of a personality, although he was very polite and only spoke when required to do so... at least he knew where he was going! J

The race itself was very tough. I thought Two Castles was hilly but I would have to say that this was hillier! Worse still, the hills had twists in them and just as you thought you’d broke the back of the hill you were struggling up, you’d round a bend only to find that it just carried on up and up... I ended up walking up the last hill, I was just so tired. We ran on traffic-free country lanes; the scenery was pretty and the atmosphere friendly.

Jayne had recovered from her viral infection and was in fine form. She finished the race in 1:03; I came in a minute behind her in 1:04 and Shirley (who hadn’t run for a fortnight) came in at 1:05. The rain had stayed away during the race but the heavens opened just as we reached the finish.

We collected our well deserved medals, grabbed a quick cuppa then headed off to the pub for a spot of lunch. The manager at the Chequers (a rather quaint public house) eyed us suspiciously as we propped up the bar. “We’re quite busy” he informed us... we just steamed silently and gave him the ‘look mate we’ve just run 6 miles and if we don’t eat soon we’re gonna faint’ look. He eventually gave in and ushered us over to a table. After some posh nosh and a bowl of chips, we rejoined Tom Tom in the car and headed back home. All in all, a really good day.

PS I was sorry to miss the Wombourne Wiggle. Well done to all the ladies who ran, I heard it was tough! Actually, I did send my representative to run in my place. My 6 year-old daughter, Hollie ran in the fun run. I asked her if she wanted to comment for the forum and she just said that “it was very muddy and puddley” She thoroughly enjoyed it by all accounts!
