Tricia - i saw you just as we were leaving Falkirk. Couldn't wait any longer - sorry. I would have given you a heckle but your number was on your back before we noticed you. Then a friend saw you at Linlithgow CP but again i was just away to next one.
Well done on grinding it out - It's not an easy race.

Now I'm wondering why I was being such a wimp at 40 miles- honestly, I could so easily have just stayed sitting at the CP. I am so glad I didn't- just the achievement of getting the first 50 miler done was what kept me going- if there had been a CP at 51 miles, that might have been different, but there was no way out other than via the finish line at that point. I think next time (if there is a next time) will be easier, as I was quite anxious about the distance all day, not knowing how I would feel at that point- now I know I can do it.

Anyone running it this year? (Spotted Nelski on the entry list). 1st April, 3 days left to enter.

Towpath resurfacing continues, the often squidgy bit after the big tunnel amongst the bits done, and the tunnel itself has a new interactive lighting experience (which gave me considerable amusement last week).

Hmm good to know the muddy bit beyond the tunnel is getting dealt with. Its where i usually lose most time as i cant make decent progress throu there cos it so manky.

Just need to be fit enough to run that far so maybe in a year or two

A sttretch inside the last 1/4 mile is shut which will be a pain as there is a diversion down to dundee street
