As promised here is a list of the guesses for my competition including mine! Click on the picture to see the full list.
I really don’t know whether I’m capable of running this fast but I’m keen to try. If I can’t then I’ll have to readjust and it could be I’ll be very happy just to finish whatever the time. I really don’t want Katrina to win the prize with a dnf!!!!
So here is my schedule for the race.
Up until a few weeks ago I was thinking that I would treat this race as a recce for next year but there are a few reasons why I’ve decided to go for it …
1. I always like to do my very best in a race
I don’t race that often so like to give it everything when I do. If I’m not going to give it 100% then I’d rather not pay the entry fee and do a training run.
2. I feel in good shape
My training all year has been good and I’ve been able to build on the whw race. My 60mile training run 4 weeks ago was a real encouragement and has given me the push to go for it.
I really appreciate Neal & Caroline giving up a weekend to help me and want to make it worthwhile for them as well! Plus it’s expensive with entry, travel, etc so I’m keen to get my money’s worth!!
This might all go horribly wrong but it will make interesting reading! So my plan is to stick to the sub 26hr schedule for as long as possible and see if I can keep it going right to Filey.

Finally all the best to everyone who is running. Hopefully by Sunday I’ll have made lots of new ultra running friends.
