A good ish nights sleep was a bonus and we were in the chasing start, off at 7.06 am, only 6 mins behind the leaders Barrable and Crickmore.
We'd got them in our sights by the 1st control but they chose a different route to them after that. We were running much faster as the terrain was a lot better, space to fit your feet in next tot he tussocks rather than a hole full of water!
Good speed round the end we chanced some extra points and a huge hill to finish - and we thought we were overcooking it! We didn't and probably undercooked it being the first finishers on the OMM 2009 and having just under 30 mins to spare!
An amazing descent of the last hill in under 15mins was a great end to the weekend and some lovely veggie soup at the end. Perfect. Even got on the OMM podcast as the first finisher!
