Just seen email from Rob and realsed that MM is this weekend. It's all coming back to me now - the first hill, the steps, more hills, the woods, the giant cows, the long downhill, more steps, the bag-piper, the tricky slope at half-way, more steps, cows, hills, steps, those damned steps, and then the cakes at the end. Lovely.
Am not very fit this year, but I'll get round. One question Rob, can we park in Rykers car park for the duration of the event? I seem to remember they lock it early, or am it wrong?
Thank you Rob for another fantastic event today. Organisation was excellent, great marshalls, good weather and lots of lovely cake at the end.
Second time I have run the Munro and I knocked 6 mins off last year's time, so am very chuffed. I kept telling myself to hold back in the first half and it worked. I dragged myself up the steps at the end and felt great at the top. Then just as I was about to run down the hill to the finish my right calf cramped up really badly. Thanks to the runner who offered to stop and help. I managed to stretch it out and hobble home. My kids ran down the hill with me at the end which was great.
Well done to everyone who took part today and thanks to the marshalls and everyone handing out sweets, it really helped.
