So the PLAN was to go and do Town Moor today for the returning annual Blaydon Race T-Shirt Show-Off. Town Moor is cancelled next week and the week after for the Hoppings fair but it was meant to be on today.
However, the Hoppings prep lorries rolled up early on the Moor this morning and Town Moor cancelled at approximately 8:45am – so at 8:48am when we realised what was happening, we joined the mass panic jog down to Leazes Park. We made it with about three minutes to spare, though they then went and delayed the start to allow for Town Moor stragglers! This enabled a much-appreciated breather before getting going again.
Not at all my fastest around Leazes, though it was a couple of minutes faster than last week’s time at Jesmond Dene as it’s an easier course. Happy with that on current legs!
