Tonight, I had a different post planned, but it has been usurped by some GB Relay news.
For those who don’t know, @TheWelshWookie and I recently took part in a world record attempt for the longest running relay. It ran continuously, 24 hours a day, throughout June and early July. You can read my race report here. We really enjoyed it!
Unfortunately, the news isn’t good. I found out tonight that at some point, the baton was on the ground. The rules were clear about it not touching the ground. 😦
I don’t know when it touched down, whether it was before or after our stage, but I know it wasn’t us. I also don’t know if it was placed on the ground deliberately or by accident, or if it was dropped.
But, these things happen. It just means that we’ll be there for the 2015 relay, and we’ll look on this year as a dress rehearsal 🙂
Always look on the bright side, eh? 😉
