|lucja and fiona at the start|
|as ready as i'll ever be|
|on the way to the commando memorial|
The course is varied in terrain & views, ascent & descent .
well marshalled, great support [sometimes by people i knew!] enough water to drink, often enough,some people around & about to chat with, if you got bored. amazing organisation from 2 people & their band of helpers.
pasta party was up to the snowgoose at aonach mor, for really nice grub, fab views & a wee band playing ceilidh tunes.
at the end, i was announced,medalled, & given my goodie bag which did indeed contain whisky. this marathon is so far away from a big city marathon, that even though it was really tough [for me] it didn't kill me & i do feel stronger as a result.
Highly recommended- if you wanted something slightly different.
|almost there- back in the forest.|
|unusually- a view from aonach mor-ignore the date- the camera reset on the way up- must have been the altitude!|
