I stayed the night at the Lee’s as we had a 5am start at Blackhill the following day. We were joined by my Brother Mick Nattrass and friend Val Baxter. Val had torn her calf muscle so she decided to bring her bike along. The support and encouragement from both Mick and Val was fantastic on the day.
Joining us at Blackhill were Aidan Hughes and Ian Young. Still can’t believe they joined us at 5am! Just goes to show what support we had, even at this hour. Such a small world too, Aidan told me that he worked for Tiny Lives. As this was the first run and at 5am, the headlamps from Defender worked a treat, thanks again guys!
Blackhill parkrun is one of the toughest runs in the North East so we were pleased to get this one out of the way early. It’s actually a really, really nice run too so if you haven’t ran this parkrun before, make sure you check it out.
One down and 11 to go!
