Snowdonia Marathon 2016

Trex, I'm sorry you had a bad experience seeing as I talked you into it. Trust me, you would not have wanted to do the last 20 miles in the rain and wind at 2 was grim enough at 9pm. I do think that it has the making of an iconic event when Huw gets feedback.

However, I am still an ultra marathon novice so perhaps I still have a lot to learn, I just eat Curly Wurlies each 7 miles and gaze at the landscape!

Thank you tp fellow Snods for words of support, hope to see you soon ..12 weeks according to JB X

Only 12 weeks, how time has flown!

Pen Llyn Ultra was an absolute 'beauty and the beast' event. We cracked off to the roar of fireworksfrom the sailing club in Pwllheli at 5am still in semi-darkness. We basically followes the coastal path around the Lleyn through all the beautiful hot tourist spots. The weather was stunning and the views to die for. However, around 5pm the heavens opened and we were lashed by wind and rain for the last 7 hours. It turned out to be just under 80 miles. Managed it in 18hrs and 43 minutes, some way off my target but I really had underestimated how brutal the course was. Came 7th overall and 2nd lady!

Loved it but easily the toughest day at the office I have had in a long time. Saw TR briefly at the start. Looking forward to hearing his report and don't envy him having to camp at the end of a long, wet, windy event. Off to search for my legs now, thing I left them on a mountain somewhere!

Well, managed another mini ultra on Sunday of 34 miles as last training run, got a fab trophy. 

TR, my map is sorted, bags packed...I am ready for a lovely day out on Saturday in the most fantastic area of the UK (only if the sun is shining though!). Looking to do it in around 16-17 hours if all goes well then I can have a pint at the Sailing Club

TR, I am very much looking forward to it and likewise have not studied map yet. Defo road shoes for last section, don't want to be trudging along a road in trail shoes after 60 miles. I just really hope the weather is in our favour though!
