A change of venue caused by tree-felling up at Standing Stone saw the potters assembling at Teggs Reservoir car park on a dank, cheerless morning. Some drizzle and an overall dampness didn't promise well but being potters we had to get on with it.
Seven finely-tuned athletes set off, therefore, heading towards the Rainow area, a village well-named it seemed. Pete complained this was not his kind of weather and that if he dragged his feet and fell behind, we should not wait for him.
Sure enough, he was as good as his word, and Pete disappeared from view shortly after Hardingland. The rain never became too heavy and, fortunately, there was very little wind. But, nevertheless, we were pretty wet by the time we reached Walker Barn.
Consolation could be found in the easy running, thoughtfully provided by today's leader; mainly grass with few rocks, inclines rather than hills, and plenty of downs to balance the ups.
Chat was good and nobody fell over, so generally, we were in good spirits. Through Hordern Farm and then round the loop taking us down to the waterworks road and back along the Gritstone Trail, before heading into the Teggsnose country park.
Everyone seemed to take an individual route down to the reservoir so that we entered the car park in drips and drabs. Very drippy, very drabby.
