East District XC Champs - Aberdeen 16th
Not enjoyable at all...wanted it to end already from halfway through the first lap. Stomach had been feeling off since dinner last night. Felt dizzy and queasy on the trip up and could barely keep my eyes open, sleeping most of the way, but thought it was just bus sickness. Started off steadily and was okay through the first lap but just got slower and slower and felt like I was going to puke every time we went uphill.
Kirstin came past midway through the 2nd lap and gave me some encouragement which was nice. Forced myself to stick with her to make it close enough to the finish that I knew I could make it. She got away on the penultimate climb but luckily there was a big enough gap behind that I could ease off and go into survival mode.

Foggy run with Jonny on the seat. Could hardly see anything and felt like we were inside a cloud the way our torches were reflecting off the fog. Running from memory on Whinny hill then retreated to lower levels after I put my foot in a hole.
