No Challenge
After many years of lusting after the poisoned chalice that is a Mourne Seven Sevens entry form and also drinking deeply from it over the years, challenge childer and mountainviewers Roberto and yours truly, the Cra recently took mountainviewer Jackill's advice to go and get paralytic on the head of bagging Errigal but as much to catch the last set of the Six Nations.
I cannot speak for the rest but I certainly can't be sure about a period between noon on the Saturday and somewhere around Omagh on the Sunday.
During these out of body hours the Robert and I resolved to have one last lash at by far the best Challenge walk in Ireland and as we planned the preamble with the enthusiasm of 20 year olds it occurred to me that we weren't. The prospect of all that training when I could be setting beans or thinning out leeks or drinking wine.
Couple of days ago we are all advised that the Sevens are off this year. No one able to take it on. Genuinely very sorry to hear that and the Spartans club efforts over the years ... magnificent and really appreciated.
Thing is, no point in training now.
Is that greenfly on the roses?
