I don't feel the love for Natalie either.  Hoping Abbie Clancy says to the end so I can drool over Alijaz.

Good luck Emily, I'm crewing and 'pacing' (I use that word loosely)  so will look out for you.

I guess it makes a change to have too many volunteers...

I know why I always offer my services but I guess it also helps that James is a great guy though and very appreciative of his volunteers.

Looking after your feet in an Ultra

 I did change my shoes and socks once..not really sure why but I thought it was the done thing!   Funny enough my pre race anxiety was very much focussed on blisters..lord knows why as I can't remember the last time I had one..Berlin 2008 ish I think?

I always wear Hilly twinskins and have since time began and I use Xenofit on my feet..which contains deer musk  sorry lovely deers!

When I feel like being a bit girly I do give my feet a bit of a pamper, oh and I always have my toe nails painted  even though they have a tendancy to drop off!


Trashed legs after 100 miler

I think we expect a lot of ourselves and probably too much at times. A week on from my aborted 100 (at 80 miles) my legs feel ok except for a niggle behind my knee but when I had to do a bit of running on a coaching course yesterday..I just felt flat..in fact I felt flat of mind too...but that is another ball game to play!

Tigerspaw..in the orange top? If so I remember you and did see you from the car at Southease so I knew you were still going. I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you again soon.

Tigerspaw..reading your post gives me hope for the future after my aborted SDW at 80 miles..still beating myself up about it but am now looking forward to trying a few other events especially as my recovery is going well so far...apart from fat ankles, not a good look!

The Saddlescombe ladies are my running club and bestie friends, a few of us have made checkpointing a life times work and strive to find something different each time!   I'll probaby be back behind the table on the NDW so will look forward to greeting some of you.

Urrmmm I did say shorter with tongue in cheek  I like to think I try my best at any distance..what I don't much like is unfinished business.

IMHO any distance is hard work if you race it..bloody Parkrun kills me. By practicing I mean ...improving my strategy and how I fuel.

Anyway..I ramble...although it helps my head!
