Just 3 months to go, hope everyone's training is going to plan, and that all have good runs this weekend. on Sunday I'm running my first ever ultra (millennium way 38mile), looking forward to it, 10 miles further than I've ever run before, so my objectives are simple 1) enjoy it 2) get to the end without feeling broken I.e. still able to train next week ( and drive home that evening!) 3) learn lots from the experience. Am feeling reasonably confident about all of these, will let you know how it goes.
I've never set out to collect majors or continents, i actually prefer smaller scale ones with Snowdonia and Windermere being favourites, but I have done the Ghengis Khan extreme grasslands marathon in inner Mongolia, China ( definately not a major), NY, London, am doing comrades and berlin this year and Boston next year ( being both older and female makes the qualifying easier! so somehow I seem to me building a collection even if it was never a plan.
Fido, great to hear you've qualified, hopefully will hear all about it at Parkrun on Saturday. I'm afraid i can't offer any food advice as I seem to be blessed with being able to eat anything at any time ( the downside is I want to eat everything all of the time!)
Lowrez, are you collecting continents, which have you run in? The idea hadn't occurred to me previously, but I guess comrades will make 4 for me, maybe I should consider adding another at some point in the future!
