Katrina & I picked up Neal & Caroline on Friday night after work and we headed up to Glencoe, via the Real Food cafe for fish and chips, in time to watch a couple of videos about the Skyline races and listen to Ian Corless interview Emelie Forsberg.
We camped at Glencoe then in the morning headed up the Buachaille Etive Mor to watch all the runners go by after about 30mins of running.
I took video clips of all the runners as they went past.
We then headed back to Glencoe for some breakfast before heading back up to cp 10 to watch the leading runners go through.
Once the top 8 or so were past we drove up to Altnafedth and walked up the Devil’s Staircase to watch the runners coming off the ridge.
Again I took some video clips.
It was really good to see top class runners like Joe Simmons and Emelie Forsberg descending. I really enjoyed cheering on Jayson Cavill who had a great race finishing 3rd male.
We went to the finish for a bit before heading home. It was a really good day out supporting the race.
I was up early and out for a run on the Gleniffer Braes. I did my usual 11mile circuit and I felt really good. It is 4 weeks since I ran the Lakeland 100 and I feel pretty well fully recovered. I have 4 weeks before my next ultra so things are going well!
