I set up this blog (Oct 06) to record my training and thoughts in preparing for the 2007 WHW Race – a 95 mile ultra race from Milngavie to Fort William.
I have now run 42 ultras over the past eleven years including the whw 6 times and you can read all about them, watch my race videos and lots more by using the tabs at the top of the blog.

Today Katrina & I climbed up Ben Nevis. We’ve not done the highest mountain in the UK so decided with the weather forecast so good to put that right.
Plus Hollie is going to climb it next Saturday with her school friends as a sponsored walk to raise money for her trip to Uganda and Katrina wanted to get up there before her. Talk about me being competitive!!
There were literally hundreds climbing the mountain so after an hour or so we went left and took the longer route. It was a right scramble near the end but well worth it.
We had to fight our way down through the crowds on the way down!
Our route ….

I took lots of photos and some video clips which I’ve put on Flickr is you’re interested!
The view from the top was amazing. Such a clear day and you could see for miles in every direction.
So it was a good day out. We stopped at the real Food cafe in Tyndrum for Fish and chips on the way home.
