Thanks for heads up re digs and transfers F-O-O-W. Found some very cheap digs not far away and no, it isn't a tent TRex!

With the nights drawing in now, it really does feel like Snod marathon season. Just 8 marathons to do for me as training runs before it

Hey.loads going on here Team Snodders!

Just back home after 9 weeks on the narrow boat interspersed with random rail journeys to do marathons/ultra events. Saturday was epic as it was the Birmingham Canal Canter..loads of cake Number 160, cracking on to that 200 marathon badge!

Pete, will be fantastic to see you yet again.

Stu, I may have messed up my digs arrangement so I may need a cupboard to lie in.

And so Trex, I look forward to the report

Hello Snodders, back from Butcombe Ultra..thud, another one I had seriously under estimated! Typical Snod marathon weather for over 11 hours and low cloud base over the Mendips. Amazing organisation and even scrumpy at last checkpoint but this was one tough day at the office. 3rd lady and won some beer Birmingham Canal Canter on Saturday as a warm-up for Hardmoors 60 next week.

Trex, I would only consider the double if the reverse was after the main event-I would be gutted if I bust myself before the 'real thing' !

Welcome to newcomers to the forum, not long now until one of the best gigs of the year!

Hey SD, are you in this year? Sorry TRex, dont have any link to Stu.

Butcombe Ultra for me on Saturday near Cheddar Gorge. Hopefully not as gruelling as Pen Llyn 79.7mile gig! Don't suppose you are doing this one are you TRex?

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!
