This was my first Ultra-Marathon, with 43 km only 805 meters more. However, your brain and mostly your legs are so used to the 42.195 that they need some talking to convincing them that they d o have to continue 😉
Now I know I can do it, ready for the 50 km TNF run…
As the start was in the evening 19:00 the heat wasn’t a problem, and the heavy rain at the end was kind of nice as it felt like a warm shower.
The timer on the photo was started 12:03 hours earlier for the 160 km runners, YES that’s right 160 km… so plus the time it took them to drag me back there equals my finishing time.
And yes, I’m now certified 43% nuts, like you didn’t know that already 😉 I will try to top that at next years race, next step will be 78%, let’s see if I eventually make it to 160% that really would be mind blowing…
