Day 1 of the challenge week has come and gone. The actual drive up wasn't to bad at all considering. Left the house at 8 sharp Sunday morning and arrived at Kirkby Stephen around 5pm and ofcourse us being the well prepared team of ultra athletes we are the first stop was the pub. A couple quick pints in the local then off to the cricket club that has kindly lent us there clubhouse to put our heads down for the night. So tomorrow it begins with 30miles running, I personally am quite excited about the whole week and now were here just want to get underway. some others (Geoff) are quite worried. Besides everyone's worries, thoughts and ideas of how terrible its going to be the mood within the team is amazing, everyone is upbeat, smiling and laughing. So as Iay here in a cricket pavilion changing room on an army fold out bed and my inflatable pillow anticipate a great day tomorrow and the same mood and buzz tomorrow night.....but we will see.
