Bob Graham Cert

This weekend was the Bob Graham Clubs certificate presentation night for new members who have completed the round. The certificates are handed out every two years and its been a fair wait after completing the round in June 2008. The Bob Graham round was a fantastic experience and I dont want to go into too much detail as my memories are very precious to me. The people who helped me at Pennine Fellrunners and my BG partner remain very dear to me. Its an experience that cannot be bettered. The camaraderie and frendship that is created from the day you decide to train, reccy the route, pace others, spend thousands on fuel, cry, laugh, ache, cannot be described
I now have my certificate which I will take a photo of later. Its just a piece of paper really.
I will never forget the day i ran over 42peaks under 24 hours over the lakeland fells.

Pacers notes all filled in

Honister and im getting tired
A bit of rice pudding

The view that all people waiting for a BGer experiences as they wait for the contender to run up to the Moot Hall
