Peak experience

Not often you get an offer to travel to the Peak District all expenses paid to run up and down hills with a bunch of ameteurs intent on testing out shoes and having a good time – when it happens and someone offers to pay you don’t say "eerrr maybe".  This week I travelled to Sheffield and on to pretty Hathersage to stay in The George and do just that – all courtesy of New Balance the running apparel peeps.  It was enhanced by an exceptionally warm day which was slowly revealed by the burning off of some pretty thick mists which took flight at midday allowing us to see Stanage Edge in all its glory.  We climbed, walked, talked, drank and ran 10 miles or so around Mam Tor and stressed muscles we didnt know we had.  I’m now no longer a fell running virgin and although I can’t say im much good at it at least I’ve got the shoes…
