Was it not The Fugees who said .........

"Ready or not, here I come, .............."

Well that sums up the state of play ahead of this weekend's Endure 24 in Leeds.  Having lost another 3 weeks due to injury I managed to get a gentle 32 miles in last week  - at least I'm going to be fresh.

Sister, Catherine has also had her problems.  So its will just have to be a case of getting in what we can and enjoying the occasion.

If the weather forecast is anything to go by its going to be a hot one.

A race against time

Due to on-going problems with the bursa behind my left knee and the shin / ankle problems on the other leg I was marshalling instead of running this years Blaydon Race.  Stationed on Scotswood Bridge I watched as Chris Parr of Gateshead Harriers lead the field towards Blaydon.

First Blaydon Harrier - George Rudman

Chris was overhauled in the closing stages of the race eventually finishing 3rd in 26.48 behind John Beattie of Newham and Essex Beagles (26.41) and Carl Avery of Morpeth.

Not having ran, now for just over two weeks and with my partner in crime Catherine also suffering with injury problems it is now becoming a race against time for us making the start line of Endure 24 in 3 weeks time
