Last year was incredible!
I did IronMan! If that was all I had done then it would have been ok, even to simply hang up my shoes and take a long long break. I did not do that, no way. Another highlight for me was competing in my first ever multiday event; the Mountain Warrior Challenge. Wow that was tough, they even called it off, but a group of us decided to push on through albeit very slowly. I have to say that the second day was quite painful; because of my aching legs and the very slippery clay surface.
As for 2014 …
It has started off with a bang!
My wife competed in her first ever trail race (first race ever) and I made first place in the Vets age group of the 18km Post Turkey Trail Run – so cool.
Plans for the rest of the year.
Hmmm, I still need to figure out that next big race. All I know is that it needs to be an ultra trail (at least 95% trail)
Would like to do the Salomon Sky Run Lite or the Whale of Trail, but it is just too much money for me to fork out (entry fee + travel + accommodation + food)
Otherwise I will be running the 22km Two Oceans Trail run in April.
