Blaydon was the venue for the third race in the North East Harrier Cross Country League and since it was on home soil, I did not want to miss it, despite this lingering bout of cold.
Although my clocking of 34.19 was about a minute down on what I would have expected to run, it was definitelyy a better performance than a fortnight ago, on the Town Moor. Finishing in 72nd position I was first counter for the Blaydon team.
New club member Peter Hodgson was second counter, finishing 94th in 34.45 in his first cross country race.
