In one of those things that seemed normal at the time but now feels incredibly strange back in 2020 I managed to do one of the toughest runs I’ve ever take on. Somehow, that year’s Langdale Half Marathon managed to happen in that small window between the end of the first lockdown and then the long drawn-out vaccine-awaiting lockdown of winter 20–21 and somehow, I managed to make it all the way around.
