Hard Times - The Human League

'Hard times' - Callis, Oakey, Wright

We saw some really hard times during the weekend's ULTRArace.100. It's fascinating looking on at a 100 mile race as you really get to see what people are made of. Over the years it's become a well written script where we KNOW what will happen and it becomes a bit of an inevitable car crash...

Most run far too fast for the first 30 miles and eliminate halfway the race winners are virtually decided and in the dark there's always one person that gets right royally lost, many times.

At 80 miles people are pretty destroyed, at 90 they are back in the land of the living and at 99.9 miles they are running like Usain Bolt.

If it was easy, we'd all be doing it. If you've done one yourself, you know exactly what I mean... if you are thinking about doing one, do your homework, run/cycle/drive the course, 100's are seriously difficult - don't make them any harder.

More tomorrow...
