Challenge Accepted - Loch Ness Marathon - 29th September 2013
After taking part in a few muddy races such as Tough Guy (image below) and X-Runners Water Wipeout as well as the last 2 Great Birmingham Half Marathons I have decided to go for it and hit the heavy task of completing the 26 mile run along the beautiful Loch Ness, passing world famous scenery and maybe solving the mystery of the Loch Ness monster.
The Loch Ness marathon is the biggest rural setting marathon in Scotland and set in one of the most famous parts of the world. Starting between Fort Augustus and Foyers and finishing along the River Ness in the centre of Inverness
Training has long started but many more grawling weeks ahead. Last weeks my 12.5 mile run passed through settings such as Moseley Bog and Sarehole Mill best associated nowadays with the author JRR Tolkien who spent his childhood nearby and used these areas as inspiration in his best sellers The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Not only that but ran past a marathon legend, world record holder, Paula Radcliffe in Cannon Hill Park.
I hope the next 2 months of training brings me a much joy as that day did.
