Scott - I'm speechless! Congratulations. I've no idea how you managed that given everything you've been through this year but it's incredibly impressive.

 If anyone was wondering what the metal-work looked like. The Thames Trot is my local Ultra and I needed a goal when I was recovering and a simple marathon wouldn't do.I think I have the bug now but I need to go slowly. I seem to pick up injuries really easy so it is all a balancing act between training hard enough and too much pain. Having said that the neck doesn't really hurt, it is the classic knee pain for me.

Thanks for the radiograph - nice C5-6 repair there! Obviously TT50 -did- make a good goal. Continue with ultras or not, as seems right for you.

Seriously impressive Scott. Respect is due.

Thanks guys. I only really started this as it seemed one of the hardest things to do. When I was unable to walk I read all the books about ultra running. I have a massive amount of respect for anyone who has ever done any form of ultra. The more I discover about this sport the more I realise it is a mental thing and the final strength comes from your head.

Scott! Massive respect to that, not only overcoming the crazy injuries but a massive performance in the race. I salute thee.

First run after the event today, a steady lunchtime 5-miler. I'm fairly certain I cracked a rib or maybe my sternum when I got car-doored on the way into Goring, it's still a bit sore when I do much with my chest.
