I'm Back!

Well, as I suspected I couldn't resist having another crack at the Jungfrau so what better place to log it all than here in my good old blog. I've just had my entry confirmed so this will be the first of many posts.

Having been disappointed with my time last year (although mighty glad to have finished considering I tore my calf in my next race) I thought I'd go for a 4:30 run (equivalentish to 3hr normal marathon).

I'll be 50 by then but I'm humbled to see that there's a Swiss guy on the start list who was born in 1927 and a couple from St Albans who were born in the mid 1930's. If they beat me I'm taking up golf.

Before that I've got to get over (literally) the 3 Peaks in April. That's got a similar ascent to the Jungfrau but lots more descent. It's also hosting the WMRA World Mountain Running Challenge that was hosted at last year's Jungfrau. I've a feeling that this will be a much more local affair though with only a few hundred runners.

Here we go again.....

Wow! Good luck! I'm doing the equivalent trainingnhere - jogging with a double jogging stroller!

Hi Janice,

Thanks for the comment. I reckon that you should apply for the Canadian bob-sleigh team with that sort of training!

Keep on running and keep on loving those kids. Both will pay dividends later on in life (Even better than winning that lottery!)

Tis good to be back blogging again. It's very cathartic to just twitter on about stuff.
