    Pain tolerance maybe (but we won't get on to the labour theme!!!) - think we've got more sense haven't we?

    I ran the Spen 20 this morning.

    First person I bumped into was Malcolm Coles who ran the Hobblihike yesterday - so for the weekend, he raced 52 miles - Chapeau!!

    There was another chap who did both as well - but couldn't put a name to his face- apologies.

    Thanks to Brett and all the marshals for a great morning out in the hills.

    That post race chilli certainly had a bit of a kick to it.

    I've only run this race before as a solo but this year did it as a pair. It makes it a whole different race as you've got to work as a team and rely / depend on each other for success / failure.

    I really enjoyed it and I think I got round quicker this year as a pair than I would have done as a solo. I felt good at the start and led us out to Stoodly - then I started to tire and my pal felt strong so pulled me all the way back to the finish - seeing him trotting off in front made me keep jogging when I would have started walking.

    I don't think it should be just pairs (or just solos for that matter) but I'd certainly recommend having a go at both.

    My thanks to Brett and all the marshals - another cracking event and for my money the new (old) venue is even better than old (new) one.

    Fourth Hobble for me and always in a pair although had three different partners. Agree with N&G that it's good running as a team and you gee eachother along. I liked the new (old) venue too, although I liked Penistone Hill too
