With little fewer than 6 months to go before I reattempt my ONLY DNF…. i am starting to think a little more about the Dusk til Dawn 50 mile Ultra Marathon. It is in Derbyshire – starting near Castleton.
I attempted it last year – but sadly got injured at 19 miles. I was really grateful for the help from @ahealthierMoo – who risked her time to help me out. This year will be different. I am better prepared. I am getting down to my ideal race weight. I have the benefit of learning from my past mistakes.
Over the next few months I will be getting my weight closer to my ideal. I will be getting my kit up to scratch. I will also be checking out the route and the profile, and properly planning my race strategy.
One of the problems that I had last year was my trail shoes. I have now upgraded to More Mile Cheviots. They are superb in mud. So that should put me in a good place. I also have a waterproof and lightweight jacket – that will help keep me warm and won’t weight quite so much.
Love it. Have it. Live it.
