Yesterday Mr Uphilldowndale (Mr Uhdd) and I were up in the Lake District, at Loweswater for the Darren Holloway memorial fell race, run in memory of our friend, Darren, ‘Daz H’. There are handsome trophies for the first male and first female runner.
‘Dig in’ is just the sort of encouragement Daz would have shouted to others on to be the best they can. We’ve mentioned before how much Daz encouraged all in their running.
Race HQ was at Loweswater village hall
( I think the robin had heard about the wonderful cakes).
It was of course an emotional day, but the was much laughter, Darren’s aunt and mum with the trophies
Whilst Mr Uhdd was out on the the hill marshalling part of the race,
I took the camera for a contemplative walk.
We were able to round the day off by visiting my friend and former colleague in her new home, just a few miles away, she and and her family had only moved in the day before (and all their worldly goods had yet to arrive) so we really did ‘first foot’ them. We didn’t have coal, but we did take cake.
