#nofilter - Highlight of the day was saving a little Herdwick lamb from a cattle grid, it was so fluffy we wanted to steal it 😍😍😍. Vicky is now a Lakeland route expert, she has learnt from the best 😎 - There is no getting lost on my watch! #true
Ultra Pirineu 110km 2017 was such an amazing race. Still is the only race where ive ever started seeing things in the woods at night* 😁😁. Incredibly hard work! This was about 14km into the race and it was all uphill to around 2500m, I was exhausted by now haha. Great support and great event. Can't wait to go back and do it again!!!!! 2019?
* it was a beaver working as a stone mason filing down wood on a big wheel 😱
Mont Blanc - Absolutely breathtaking views this morning on a 1,000m 5km blast up to Refuge de Platé. I went up fast to see Gavin and Giles on the PTL but missed them by 20 minutes. Good news they are storming along so it was a blessing I missed them at exactly 8.00am. Going to miss the Alps now, until next year's BIG DANCE 🎉🇮🇹🔥🔥
UTMB for me is also about the people you meet and the friendships you have. This year I travelled between checkpoints in Switzerland and France mainly with a man from Malaysia, he drove me in his car and we cheered on our partners together. I also got a lift from an Italian man which was a blessing because the busses were a nightmare!!! Also 3 years ago on the ride into Chamonix we met a man from Singapore, every year in this little town we have a catch up, great times with great people
Looking up to the pass at 'col de La Portette', 2354m high this is one of the final passes the #PTL runners will face after being at Refuge De Platé 10 minutes back. (@pseudo_hendrix ). - Absolutely stunning route up here, never taken this path before but loved it, until I fell on the way down admiring the views of Mont Blanc 😭🤕
Pendle Hill is iconic from all around my home town. I decided to go up it today and share the trail with @freckleflower. I was paying my respect to a family member which is why we are in Burnley today 💜 Under these circumstances it was nice to do something refreshing and enjoy being here and able to do these things. I felt exhausted after doing it as quick as possible but that's a good feeling of being alive 💜
