The long and short of it.

A bit of news about what is going on around the club.  While Mo Farah got silver and Usain Bolt got disqualified, one of our seniors and sometime coach is spending the weekend running round Europes highest mountain in the the Ultra-Trail Du Mont Blanc.  Malcolm Hughes is currently 41 hours into the 170 km race.  The race takes in both France and Italy and is mostly on trails at altitudes of over 2000m.  The race was in some doubt earlier this weekend due to high winds and wintry conditions.  He has something like another 20km to go and so should be finished by this evening. 
I took on a far easier challenge (commensurate with my ability) accompanying the kids around a 1km Fun Run.
