I attempted my first ultra marathon on Sunday at the Trailblaster 12 – a 12 hour endurance event where you clock up as many of the hilly, 5k trail loops as possible. Quite honestly, I’m struggling to put the experience into words.
Instead I’ve made this video, which I hope will better tell the story and the emotions behind the day. I’d love it if you could give it a watch. Oh and don’t forget to turn the volume up – the soundtrack’s pretty good too.
Sincere thanks to everyone who had a hand in that day – the organisers, the other runners, the supporters, the volunteers, the photographers – it was an honour to spend the longest day of the year with the most wonderful people.
