This photo is taken at the point I sat down on the floor and cried. I didn’t finish today. I fell on grisedale house on the descent and for I will I was okay but by silver Howe I was a mess emotionally and physically. But you get the race you train for and I was too fat and lazy for this ever to have been a good idea. I don’t want sympathy; I want to stop kidding myself that I ever was a runner #lakelandtrails#ultratraining#runnersofinstagram#ut55#dnf#ukrunchat#instarunners
Train. Race. Beer. My #firstultra, the #ut55 in Ambleside. Thanks go to Pen for the constant support in this crazy endeavour. And also to @ethannewberry for the inspiration; I owe you a beer!! It was beautifully brutal; sunburn, wind and rain (a typical day in Lakeland). Marshalls were awesome, as was the applause all the way round. So... what's next?
Good morning! Even the weather knows it's a special day today. Because today we celebrate the University's 55th anniversary! The celebration will be held in the Waaier from 13h onwards. Four honorary doctorates will be confered, the Overijssel PhD Award will be presented and last but certainly not least, the transfer of rectorship will take place.
