Brrr, Saturday was so cold – even in the lovely sunshine! Seeing the forecast during the week before I think I’d have been forced to forgo a little weight saving and pack a warmer sleeping bag and extra chocolate for the mid-way camp. Ah, and maybe a tipple of something special like Drambuie to boost morale levels!
Fantastic effort though! Is the OMM the last two day mountain marathon of the year?
Well done both – and thanks for confirming that the decision we (I!) made to pull out at road on day two was the right one. We stupidly tried the elite – day one was 39km (allegedly) with 3100m height gain Day 2 was 31km with another 2600m, most of which was towards the end. My 2/10 morale level didn’t fancy it, but mainly cos I was so chuffed with getting round day 1! Completely understand the overnight camp and Wild Boar fell grumbles, but at least those bits don’t come as surprise?!
