So, my first FNC and it went well. I started by getting to the Hotel the night before and enjoying a pizza and a beer for dinner for going to bed quite early compared to normal. I got up at 4:05 and then made my way to Hounslow West. I met up with Andi on the train at Heathrow. We had a very quick change early on there. Hammersmith run was faster than I thought it was going to be, same for Kensington. After ticking off Hainault early on, a decision was made to do the High-Barnet branch and Mill Hill East first. Got a bus to Cockfosters and then headed down to go up to Stanmore (?) to get another bus to tick off the Edgware branch of the Northern Line. All went well with the running that day although Andi had a near miss with a mini digger in Aldgate and we went a way out of Euston I had never done personally but they went well. There was also an epic jump from Andi over a cerbstone, I ran the long way round it. I managed to visit Chiswick Park twice thanks to not knowing the way on a run. We met up with Josh at Northwick Park having walked from Kenton. The end of the last uphill run beforehand was when my legs were starting to go. We said goodbye to Andi in Harrow and after that it was just the last few stations to visit before stopping the stopwatch on my iPhone with a time of 18:42:50.19.After that, it was back into central London to get a McDonalds at KXSP and Hugo joined us as well. We left at 2am and Josh and I were in Hounslow at 3:20 ish.

Massive thanks to Andi and Josh 'cause without them, I wouldn't have completed all 270 stations on my first attempt!!
