Grisedale Grind

Next level stuff today…did you know that there are mid week races? Up mountains? After work? 

Over 100 everyday heroes turned up to run up (and down) Grisedale Pike on hump day at 7pm. I was one of them.

I’d been warned about this one, it’s just up and down, I knew it was going to be a tough one. Can you tell by my face?:


Let’s face it, I struggled. But once I came to terms with the fact that it was painful and exhausting and accepted that…I really enjoyed it.

By 10 minutes in, all you are is an oscillating mass of bone and flesh and snot and sweat trying to articulate your disgusting mass in some sort of forward direction…. I speak for myself obviously but eventually this disgusting mass made it to the summit and then bounded back down feeling a little more human!
