I like runs that are not to easy. Glad you will do it again sometime. I live near clitheroe in lancashire, some great places to run. I love traveling to different places to run, I make it a holiday as well. This year I ran the hadrians wall two day ultra, a fab marathon in Holland were you can cycle or run the event a good bit of off road , running through a chateaux, cow sheds, tasting cheese, pancakes, wine etc the scenery and atmosphere a must do event again, hubby did this one, plus other events of shorter distances. Hoping to book connemara and Dingle this weekend just trying to persuade hubby to enter as well but only half marathon for him, he did Connemara half when I did the ultra, so he knows the route.
T Rex hope you get a place in the American river 50 , fingers crossed for you. Shades thanks what a fantastic race report , what a journey. I think firstly to do the first ever Dingle Ultra must have been special, but finishing in 2013 you must have felt on top of the world, after being poorly in 2012. Reading your race report makes me realise even more how special the race is, so if I can't do the ultra I am going to enter the marathon and maybe persuade my hubby to run it also. And I may try and run Connemara in April I ran that in 2011 I still have a chuckle a guy was running up the hill of the west, I think I heard him before I saw him, him swore all the way up , if he stopped swearing he would have got up quicker, mind you I think we laughed that much we would have got up quicker. Thanks again for such a fantastic race report.
Shades thanks for e mailing its very much appreciated. I can only hope they change their minds. My hubby thinks I'm nuts , he said he would never run anything longer than a half marathon , well after 29 years of marriage and me going on about runs ,he has now done the Hadrians wall ultra two day , and has just done a marathon. He was going to run the Dingle marathon while I did the ultra, T Rex thanks , have you any races planned.
