I didn't take any pictures this weekend so here's one of me and my Goblet!!
I had written a lovely bit about how the day went but my phone deleted it so i'll try keep it short...er...
My head wasn't in it to start, it was a struggle, I kept in mind @pyllon last words to me before the start "Just get to the next aid station" and kept mobing forward. ( I do listen..sometimes ;) ).
The technical section at lochside gave me a big boost as I loooooove technical, then for most of the Beinglas to Auchtertyre section I felt empty, lightheaded and nauseous. Took some extra time at the checkpoint there to get my shit together and went on to pick up Bryan at Tyndrum. Started feeling back to normal so we then beasted the last 40miles until Fort William passing everyone we encountered!! Yeah baby!! Bryan and I met in this race in 2015, had never run together well that was one awesome first run!! No messing about, no shit, just let's do it! And it was super fun too!! Yaaaassss!!
My goal for the day was first of all a sub-24hr finish and second a female top10 if it all went well, I was just out of the top 10 by about 8 minutes coming in 13th girl but in a time of 23h49' and running some super fast splits on those last sections of the race so there is always room for improvement for sure but, considering I just go out and have fun I'm very happy with that indeed!!! #fuckyeah
Thank you to my wonderful crew @teapotandtrainers and Bryan Grant, wouldn't have made it without you!!
