I did the Hot Toddy race today. My first race since school, 30 years ago.
5.8 miles through the Pennines in driving sleet.
It was a personal challenge. I've not had much chance to train, on account of the foot of snow that's been about for the last few days.
But the race went well. My wife and daughter came to see me off and cheer me in. I came about 196th out of 244. My time: 52 minutes exactly.
I know I'm no athlete, but I feel pretty good about it. It was a great way to end the Christmas period. I ate a lot a bad things this weekend.
Now it's back to writing the next book. The fourth Foul Play novel. I got the plot sorted before Christmas.
I can't wait to get stuck in.
