even they have to bow to the power of nature. And this was the case on Saturday for Albert’s attempt at a Joss Naylor Lakeland Challenge. Ian has posted a bit more on his blog about the day. I think the pictures tell the story. Hugely disappointing for Albert who was running very strong – another day!

It’s all about the time

but this was the reality – they’re up there somewhere

A splash of sunshine before the torrential rain appeared again
The conditions on the day will always determine the outcome of these extreme challenges. We will all be back to support Albert’s attempt next time
