You dont need to be mad but it helps.
Fellrunners have often been described as weird ,crazy or just downright odd.

Winding up badger
Now this is what happens when we run. Badger winds me up then I wind him up. On the lower slopes or hills he dashes off in front whilst constantly checking me but just keeping that little way in front to enforce the fact that the hills come very easy to him. You can see it on his face. BUT when I finally get to the summits its my turn. Im always changing direction etc just to keep him guessing just to wind him up. It works as well
God its hard sometimes. I once heard it called UPPING. Thats running uphill. See his face , haha, he aint happy. Stopping for a comedian on the fells is certainly not on his agenda.
