Quick post, kit is now sorted, drop bags are packed. A good meal tonight and as much sleep as I can muster. 6 am tomorrow I hopefully run further and longer than I ever have before, the weather looks ok so that’s one less thing to worry about.

Have a great race, see you in the morning. I have just signed in and picked up my number.
Come say hi 🙂
Garry – Number 9
Best of luck!
How are you feeling buddy?
Not too bad now, trying to move about on Sunday was fun. How are you? Saw the results, what happened? Did you make it to the next aid station,?
Yeah, It was was only really yesterday that I could move more freely, why do we do it to ourselves.
I made it to Holly Hill, but getting there took ages. I got a couple of massive blisters on both feet, something I never got in training and they meant that I could barely walk or put any weight on my feet, let alone run. I just couldnt carry on which is a real shame as I felt really good in myself, food and drink was fine, just an inability to run, quite annoying 😦
So whats next for you? I have a good few pics of you so you shall have to let me know your mail address I can send them over.
Suppose it’s the challenge
Sorry to hear that, you were looking strong when I left you at 60. I have already signed up for the NDW50 next year, but my next event is a Duathlon at Dorney Lake, only a short one but will be good to do some speedwork, then the Pineridge 10km.
Going to reset my training to aim for the 100 again in 2015, hopefully a good full year of effort will enable me to aim for not just completion but a sub24r, I will be aiming to do the 50 next year in sub 10:30 (shave off an hour from 2012)
Awesome, I sent you a Facebook request so will PM my email to you
Ha ha, its funny, we have very similar aims it seems.
I shall also be entering the NDW50 with a view of doing the 100 again in 2015, in fact, Nick and I loosely have our eye on the Grand Slam….
Yes, At 60 I was fine, the blisters just came on suddenly and kinda stopped me in my tracks, a massive pain! Oh well, lesson learnt. Shall be getting some gaiters for next time 🙂
FB request accepted.
