I did the Northern Rock Cyclone today (the 100k) with my kid brother and it was fantastic. The weather was perfect, the views terrific and the company excellent. Saw a few of your shirts on the run (mine was the hideous yellow/lime green/blue Marbella kit). As I got home, there was a hot bath ready, then out to an afternoon tea birthday party in Low Hauxley, a tiny village on the Northumbrian coast. The theme was CAKE and there were 23 different types. I gulped them down until I felt sick, then drank wine until I was taken home. Its a hard life!!!
