Stupendous. Breathtaking. And that's just reading about it. That said, it was probably a breeze to run it..!
Well done, Simon. Taken any precautions against the Ultra Bug? As name suggests, more dangerous than Normal Running Bug. What's that? Oh, you've signed up for an 80k-er..?
Thanks both. I'm going for my vaccination against the ultra bug tomorrow, Gia, but apparently it only works in 10% of patients. I actually feel pretty good today in the body and incredibly good in the mind!
Excellent stuff once again Simon, I'm sure this experience has opened up your mind to the whole different world of ultra running :)
Amazing Simon, which ultra you are going for this year?
Thanks gents. My eyes have certainly been opened to this new world. Still considering my next move......
Fantastic stuff Simon, was great to share some of it with you, a truly stupendous first ultra. Will be great to run together again at HighPeak 40, or whenever your next ultra is!
Loved it yesterday. Had a great time and it was excellent running with you all. Thanks
Mike, what's this Highland Fling that you and Trevor keep talking about......? :)
Just brilliant Simon, and with a heck of an elevation! Looked like a really great day.
Superb going Simon. Fling entries open 1st October, I think:-)
Thanks Matt/Col. I think I'm going to have to make sure I justify my ultra runner status and not have this as a one off.
Amazing simon what a fab route too v jealous of that hillage brilliant. Welcome to the ultra side.
Thanks Helen. I'm enjoying being a member of the ultra running community now having sworn blind this time last year that I would NEVER do one!
