A friend of Georgie’s suggested I run from Amberly to Cocking Hill while Georgie and her took the dogs on a walk in Cocking.


The thirteen-year-old in me giggles.


Amazing, let’s do it.

Strava - Amberly to Cocking

And yes, the last hill, aptly named Cocking Hill, is indeed a bastard of a hill…

11 miles with 1,505 feet of up in 1:38:56 at an average pace of 8:57/mile. I’ll have that, thank you very much!
