Now, everyone’s training is different. Because of that, I am not going to sit here and write “I ran this far, at this pace, with these efforts.” I find that dangerous and not very helpful. Plus, whilst I love numbers I am more of a feel guy.
Barkley is an extraordinary event. Laz has fought hard over the years, to retain its true spirit. From the minute you arrive at camp you realise just how special this race is, because it is so low-key.
I believed I was going to finish. I believed that I was going to run 206 miles, and climb and descend 12,000m. You have to believe. But believing is one thing. Actually finishing is another.
