wannabe ultra runner?

I was at the Reading beer festival that day and yes the weather was tough. The kit you need when you're running in the day won't cut it when you're walking more in the night.

coach driver slung the coach around the narrow roads like it was a sports car, one of our party puked 5 times in the loo

quite scenic out of Glasgow past Loch Lomond and the Rest and Be Thankful etc

ferry was bracing but the bar was open.

T Rex - yep, that's the one. As you may guess from the other events, I live close by to it, and have run parts of the "middle bit" of the Ridgeway from the M40 to Wantage a fair bit in training


Good bridge between shorter ultras and the really long stuff.. we will see anyway

Went on a stag do there - stayed in Bowmore in the inn (amazing bar with 100s of whiskies with the bartop made out of stunning wood)

Did lagavulin tour which was good. Coach and ferry to the island was an interesting experience!

Junk food at races

The cynic would say preparing and transporting the pineapple, potatoes / eggs etc takes more time and effort than buying the pork pies and scotch eggs from a supermarket

I don't disagree that what you suggest would be good options but perhaps a race director opts for something his checkpoint helpers can organise more easily

My Canadian friend (well a bird I went on a date with once, she was hot!), said the wet cold we get here is far worse than the dry cold over there. Haven't experienced dry cold 

In other news I have had a new consumer unit installed, and am busy making good in the bathroom where an extractor fan was fitted. And I've just booked my flights for a 3 week road trip to the USA in June. I like this new job where taking 3 weeks off work is not frowned upon and in fact encouraged.

That's useful to know an, I get very bad watering eyes in wind, and then there's dust, sunglare, bugs as well to consider, might be better than ordinary running sunglasses which only serve sunny conditions.
