It’s been a while since my last post; study, work, training, contemplation all seem to have taken up my energies. Having submitted a major essay and finished my last day of work before two weeks annual leave, I can finally express the internal monologue that has been busting to be released.
Tomorrow I fly out to Thailand for my final Ultramarathon of the year, the 160 km Panoramic with just over 7000 m elevation ( http://teelakow.com/en/event/ultra-trail®-panoramic). It will be an ideal way of closing the doors to this year. I hadn’t planned on running 100 miles in 2017, the decision was another one of those sporadic ones that just seemed ‘right’ after finishing my last Thailand jaunt a month and a half ago. After some geographical ‘embarrassment’ in that event, the 122 km course turned into a 145 km slog…. What’s 15 more kilometres to make 160… (famous last words right…..)
