G2E fitted really well timing wise for me this year, (and good practice for running that far on the flat ), but otherwise I would have probably done the Fling again. It might not have the glamour of the WHW but there is something quite satisfying about running between two Cities . It was really well organised and very friendly, relaxed, and good discipline-wise for pacing run/walk, so it ticked the right boxes. Doing it once is probably enough though .
The guy I ran most of the last 30m with had done lots of endurance 'challenge' type events, 24hr kayaking, cycling around Europe etc, but no ultra running, so I had quite an entertaining afternoon, a) keeping him running, b) comparing insane distances and c) getting ideas for doing events I probably shouldn't .
Well done on the sponsorship FFB .
Couple of hours pottering at the allotment this morning, because tomato plants do not care if you have sore legs .
