Snowdonia Marathon 2017

Yeh, more usual suspects in..brilliant stuff! As I had to get up early this morning for Hardmoors ultra, I nearly went to bed early with thoughts of entering this morning. Got in bed at 10.30 but a little voice in my mind kept repeating..enter at midnight, enter at midnight! So hauled my butt out at 11.59, cranked the laptop on and enjoyed the queue system..but a happy Brer went to bed entered!

Hardmoors 31 today, very, very tough gig. Forecast totally wrong apart from the brutal wind. Rain, hail, mud..but a great day in beautiful area. Bed now!!

Tis done..10 marathons in 10 days...never again It has been a surreal experience and I have had to dig deep at times for motivation, physical and mental positivity. I really cant think of any other 10 day challenge that would be more gruelling.

No marathons until December 19th..

Sorry, internet failure yesterday. Day 4 4.03, today 4.02. Just keep thinking a day at a time. Got a hole in my trainers and my knees are crocked from all the concrete surfaces but tomorrow is day 6 and the I will be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Truly shattered but the camaraderie is keeping me going and the cottage we are staying in is lovely

Day 3 done, brutal wind again but stayed dry for the duration of my 4hrs 16 mins. Eating plenty of cake, chocolate, bread, porridge, potato and beer! I may actually weigh about 5 stone more by the end! Lusting for a really good quality roast with all the veg but know it would backfire on the digestive system. Ok, number 4 tomorrow...
