Yesterday was a crazily busy day involving getting up at 5:15am, marshaling my club 5 mile race for four hours, heading to Dan’s nephew’s Christening in Lincolnshire, out for a 105 minute run, showering, packing and then driving the two hour drive back to my parents in Norfolk and uploading the results of the morning’s race to the club website.
I picked up the book ‘Ultra Marathon Man – Confessions of an all-night runner’ in WHSmiths the other week. My guess is that there aren’t too many ultra-marathon books, but that there are even less ultra-marathon books written regarding night running, so I plan on studying hard! I left my marshaling duties yesterday feeling very jealous of all of the runners racing and so eager to get out there that I didn’t want to have to wait until 7pm to get my long run in. Unfortunately there was no way around the wait so I had to reserve my built up energy for after Jenson’s christening.
I don’t have my camera on me right now but plan on blogging about my hectic Sunday adventures after tea so pop back then!
