Ran the usual on sunday, twas cold and hell windy and I even chased a childs rugby ball which was off down the beach on a mission of its own. The father congratulated me on my excellent ball pickup skills as I swooped, still got the old magic. I lie I never had any magic at rugby I was a prop and in about 15 years I think I touched the ball 3 times and 2 of those were accidental.
Anyway news – I’m off racing in Sweden in August! Decided to get a few UTMB qualifying points abroad and seeing as I’m off for 6 weeks in the summer holidays why the hell not?
So I figure as long as I can complete Scafell Pike in July and Ultravasan in August thats my 4 points accrued to enter the lottery for UTMB OCC plus I get weekends and weeks away!
Til then I’ll keep pounding away at the beach
