#TDS13 Finisher..!

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 11.10.36After 29 hours and 31 minutes of running, two amazing sunrises and some 7250 meters of running uphill over 119km I’ve become a UTMB TDS Finisher… There were times I didn’t think I would finish. Times I asked what on earth I was doing. Times I almost wished I was lazy… But then there were moments of wild  joy, of stunning landscapes which sucked away much needed breath. Moments of quiet solitude under the most amazing night sky’s… And then there was running up Chamonix High Street to the roar of the crowd…

Julie from The Trail Running Team was waiting at the finish line with her handy iPhone…

I will do a full write up, when I’m back in the UK, but in the mean time I would just like to thank our sponsors, Mammut, TORQ Fitness, Tifosi, LED Lenser, and Compressport, for amazing kit, which allowed me to finish this incredible adventure. I would also like to thank Edward and Katie for support in Chamonix  in the build up to the race, as well as shouting abuse at me to make me run faster in to Chamonix, I couldn’t have done it without you..!

Now, I think I deserve a giant Ice Cream…
