Ultradad: I was wearing Asics 2120 Trail; they had done me really well, although they got pretty torn up on this run. I used to run in 2120s on the road and moved up to Kayanos late last year for the extra cushioning. I am looking at Montrail or Inov-8 this time around. There is always a difference between the Nike+ and my Garmin; the Nike+ was only off for about the first half mile.
Nick: I managed to have my last meal about two hours before, two things I did omit from the post was that I had a small gel flask with Perpetuem made up to the thickness of pancake batter and sipped that during the last couple of hours washed down with regular strength drink and water. I also had an Espresso (Caffeine) gel during the last hour for that extra push.
Catra: Leona Divide; see you there, although I’m pretty sure you be having tea and polishing your buckle long before I cross the finish line!
Rainmaker: woah, yeah I nearly totaled there, I was holding my little Canon A400 in my hand and really didn’t want to drop it in the snow!
Gotta Run; yoga, well it's been a long time and I do have the bendy characteristics of an ironing board but I am sticking with it.
Ok now for my Oscar moment!
And to everyone else; Jess, Christine, Frayed Laces, Marcy, Wes, Audrey, POM, Kim, Kxux, Relentless Runner and anyone else who I have missed thanks for your support and ongoing readership. Don't forget to add yourself to the map at the bottom the page!
These coming weeks see me getting me getting back into the saddle in time for the LA Marathon in March.
