the rabbit had injured her back on the weekend (slipping on the stairs!) but she was keen to walk it so we decided she should start as close to 12pm as she could...in the end she started off 12:03pm...

I knew it was going to be a tough ask to catch her as the wind had picked up and was quite blustery as well...her actual handicap had eased from 5:00 to 4:45...

in the end she beat me by 1:52...she had finished in 8th in 56:09 while I was 33rd...back over 31 (just) for me...

BPK: 796

splits: 5:13, 5:32, 5:09, 5:35, 4:33, 4:53, 0:07

I'm letting her having the win as my good deed for the day!
