Views Are My New Addiction

WHW Challenge Race 2018

Another attempt running the #westhighlandway I managed to get to Kingshouse with very blistered feet and toes.

I managed to treat most of them at Bridge of Orchy but pinky’s were to far gone the time I got to Kingshouse.

I’m chuffed to get over 70 miles and can’t wait till next year to try again.

The #whwchallengerace people were fantastic and a runner called Joseph who I saw at the checkpoints, somehow gave me the courage to keep going.

Glad I attempted the race to make my dad proud after a hard couple of weeks of his terminal cancer.
