Life in the Fast Lane - The Eagles

Well what a day it's been out on our ULTRArace Peaks 40 miler.... Talk about hot... it was FAST too, for everyone I think as we had course records and new pb's for lots of the runners. Hats off to Pawel Oboz who smashed Charlie Sharpes course record to run an amazing 5hrs 10minutes in his first ever ULTRA.

However, my runner of the day was Bill Mitchell, a mere 67 year old runner from Ashbourne who ran a great race and finished far from last and looked mighty sprightly at the finish. It just shows that age is no barrier to ULTRA-running... it just shows how running can be a sport to be enjoyed throughout life and Bill's a lesson to us to keep running for as long as possible.

All that's left is to add the race photos and get the results online - there's never a dull moment!
