    It is a brilliant and inspiring book. However, my copy (given to me by Jez - thanks Jez! - which I'll pass on in turn) seems to have some pages missing. The first half of the book ends abruptly mid telling of his 1989 attempt at a second (other direction) sub 3 hour PW. So I don't know how that attempt ended! Turn the page and it's the start of the section which contains his collected essays/articles.

    Is this the same in all editions of the book? Mine is the 2009 re-print by Hayloft publishing.

    Cheers

    p.s. I assume Jasmine now has the women's record does she?

    The Spine doesn't cover the full Pennine Way route (it doesn't go up the Cheviot) so I'm not sure if it counts?
    The land at the end of our toes goes on and on and on.

    It adds on other bits to compensate though, eg the descent into and back out of Hebden Bridge IIRC.
    But I expect you're right and it doesn't count.
