Post a Picture of your Dog

Mar 15 2019 09:37 AM | Stej in Articles

The longest run they've done with me is 8k.  Mind you Midnight runs up and back a lot so he probably does a couple of extra ks every time we run.   Whereas Bear can get a bit lazy and stop and wait for us to come back his way!  They just love it, so when I'm doing a long run I take them out for a few ks then drop them home and pretend I'm going out, drive the car up the road and run from there.  As you can see Bear is quite large and there isn't a fence that can keep him in if he decides he wants to get out to join me!  :)

I don’t usually cry during ultras, or any other time for that matter but I cried three times during the Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc in the French alps at the end of August 2014. The race is 168km with almost 10,000m of ups and 10,000m of downs and I have been dreaming about it for the past three years..
