This weekend was the Rab MM. I decided that I didn’t fancy chasing Richard around the fells, so I opted for an LDWA event called the Four Lakeland Passes. The route started from Borrowdale and went over Styhead Pass, Black Sail Pass, Scarth Gap Pass and Honister Pass visiting Borrowdale, Wasdale, Ennerdale and Buttermere. It was a beautiful day and I had great fun running the flats and downhills and walking the uphills, usually chatting to some other competitor. The 18 mile route was punctuated by pretty views, but more importantly great refreshments stops. My favourite was in Wasdale, where the refreshments on offer included party sausages, chopped up sausages, frankfurter sausages, sausage rolls, cheese rolls, cheese and jelly babies! What a feast! The end of the walk was marked by pie and cheesecake in the Rosthwaite Village Hall :-).
On Sunday I slept in and had a relaxing morning in Keswick before awaiting the arrival of Richard, who was a little worse-for-ware!
