- Approx 81.5 miles in 24 hrs - happy with that!! Previous 24 hr PR, 64.9 miles)
- 50 miles up in 12:18
- Blisters after just 25 miles. Feet killing me -never had issues with blisters before, welcome to the world of hurt Jimbo
- It is a damn long way from 65 to 75 miles, it seemed to take forever.
- Pity party after 77.5 miles where I quit, and went to my tent, devestated that I couldn't make it to 24 hours, and get above 80 miles.
- Decided to have another go with 45 minutes left, and ran last four miles in imitation WalMart crocs - 11 minute pace, the fastest of the 24 hours, go figure.
- Many lessons learnt -and mistakes made
- Awesome race.
