Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon
« on: June 11, 2014 »

Lowe have their MM 20th anniversary this year and have put up a two part coverage of the 1997 event, I am guessing it was the first one that was fully filmed. Good viewing for seeing how they used to do it. These folks were properly tough, none of that fancy footwear or gear we get to use now. Though I'm pretty sure one chap in the winning team was using an omm 25l.

Watch them both HERE and HERE

Hardcore! Threatening to have a go at the one this year. D class! Any advice? Can walk my nads off but cardio sucks. 30 a day man. [emoji377]

Self Pity

I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.

It's like the guy years ago that cycled from Scotland, ran the Mourne Wall Marathon, then cycled home again. Not all in the same day I assume ;)
