Hello peoples. What a day!
Unbelievable effort put in by everyone, some people are absolute machines! I was in awe of Jim.
I reckon I will do another one, but it won't be for a long time... and having consulted a dietician!
Can't wait to see my pace splits... the trace will be exactly like the mountains!
Well done everyone and I will be there to support whoever is doing it next year!
Yeah only 15 hours Fin lol - although to be fair I thought it was "Go Matey" for about the first 2-3hrs, then it clicked. can't believe your muscles aren't hurtin Fin - you're a Machine!!
I'm just fatigued all over. I want to try and run tomorrow, if the legs are up for it.
I was in awe of Jim too - such grit and determination. If you had the nutrition nailed down Jonny - these 24hr runs could be your baby. You were running so strong. My pace splits will be all over the shop too.
Yup, back at work Jonny dedicated - hardworking - neither of these am I
Well done to everyone all of you were fantastic and a great bunch of people who were a joy to meet and run with
Jonny agree with Graeme if you get it right you could be right up there i know from the mountain men how good a runner you are.
Graeme can't belive you are thinking of another 24 hr race already dont know how you done it but every time you had a break and got back on the track you looked fresh were as i looked a mess which i was.We finished so close together
Fin great running to think you were worried before the start you are one fit lady great stuff and as for your help that lady should of had a medal as well she never stopped offering help to us all and even pulled the cover down on my tent when the rain came to keep my stuff dry thanks
Marty great running mate how did you do that sprint finish at the end did you get the lap in i could no see as i was on the other sid of track.
As for myself never ever did i think i could run that far but with all the help i just tried to keep going.Would love to do it again sometime
great running by everyone,couldnt believe i had to go to work today but my legs are no worse than after a marathon,my feet ,however are a mess ,it will take a week for blisters to clear.will definently have to research different shoes
Jim see you at speed training on wednesday.
Oh somehow I got my picture in belfast telegraph.along with marty,paul mcallister and kerry lyttle.hope they get everybody else in later
How far did you amazing people travel in the course of 24 wonderful (ha!) hours?
It sounds like you all had an amazing experience even if it couldn't be described as fun.
Roll on November, I can't wait for my next one (runs away quickly, checking over shoulders for men in white coats)
I spent hours writing race report and then effing thing just disappeared. Damn!
My legs are grand now. Back to normal I think I must not have tried hard enough . MY feet are still swollen though and the blisters( never had blisters before apart from under toenails) are making life a misery. Not sure why I got them ?I had put vaseline all over my feet but I think when I got the foot massage with the oils my feet were slipping around inside my shoes afterwards.,Never thought to reapply vaaseline. Next year I wil do differently.
Results Mr Muppet... JimA1 154.21kms 96.38 miles Graeme 153.49 95.93 miles robin A 136.05 85.03 miles Finn 135.27 84.54 Marty 130.81 81.75
Awesome! Hats off to the lot of you.
Fantastic efforts all round.
Is anyone elses feet still swollen? Not sure why they havent gone down yet but I look like I have 10 little chippolata sausages at the front end of my feet and no ankle bones
I have these lovely new high strappy sandals and I cant wear them
I reckon it might be because you were on your feet more than most! My legs are relatively good, I'll be doing a wee orienteering session tommorrow.
The results and pictures are up on the ANI website
Of course they managed to catch me when I lay down for a few mins!
Well done everyone.
I've got a last minute place for Berlin so I'm going to do that as my foreign race rather than the Marseille 24hr race.
Have a good run Manx
Oh well, I guess I'll have to brush up on my french then as there may not be too many other english speakers around. Does anyone know what the french is for "get a bullet, I'm beyond help"?
How are the feet FF?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FINN !!!!!!!!!!!! Hope you have a lovely day and got the best present ever...unswollen feeeeeeeet
Anyone had a run yet since Saturday
Starting to think what next
I had a short run with the dog the past couple of nights just Jim.
Causeway Coastal at start of October will probs be my next Norn Iron run. Although it will depend how I feel after (if I get into) Tooting Bec 24hr. The only reason I signed up to it was because a friend wanted to run it.
You could do Connemara 100 this weekend if ya wanna prolong the thinking??
Graeme i had a feeling you would be on the road again.I might give the Causeway a go myself had planned to go to the Dublin marathon but after running it 4 years on a row a change would be good.
The Connemara 100 would be nice to do at some stage may find it hard to get a support crew for it however
legs are recovering,may venture out at weekend,if on saturday i feel ok may go for lurig run(fell run),as it is part of festival in the village I will be staying in.
Dont know what next "challenge" although my wife has told me not to speak to jim.May not be available for causeway marathon/ultra as may be in scotlannd that weekend
Happy birthday Finn, hope feet are getting better and ready for next challenge
my legs are fine thankfully but i have worries about my left big toenail. I had to bandage it a couple of days ago as I though it would come off in the sea. But it has been throbbing something dreadful all last night and today. HOw would you know if you had an infection in it? I tired a run today but my toe wasnt up to it.The rest of them seem to be settling all right.
Got my weeks mixed up , so Im 44 for another week almost. Wednesday is the day.
Glad to see you are al still here. I was afraid you would all disappear into the big blue yonder and I wouldnt know what was happening in the wee north.
Must check out the photos as I dont have any. Cant believe there is one of you lying. I though you were on your feet all the time!!
