OH did his first fell race today, so I got to indulge in some solo hiking with BC (we do lots of hiking together, which I love, but since OH has started fell running we've had a few days out were he runs up with BC, while I walk with JRT). I'm really enjoying the hikes when it's just me and the dog I think I may end up crazy old lady who stomps around the hills with only her dogs for company. I hope so. OH did really well, we don't know results yet, but he came in a lot earlier than either of us expected for a novice runner, looking like he'd just joined in at the end with his finishing line sprint BC made my day by getting so excited when he saw him running down towards the finishing line (he usually runs with him, so it was a double whammy of seeing him again and wanting to run with him) that I ended up doing my own finishing line sprint with him alongside the track - it raised a few chuckles, I really wish I had pictures of that Then home for home-made burgers and wine. We're all shattered, but pleasantly so and the humans are happily merry and sleepy - all Saturdays should be like this!
