'100 ultras' milestone!

I was looking through my events diaries last night and realised that Starkholmes Stagger was my 100th Ultra marathon since my first one (Bullock Smithy Hike in 1996). By ultra marathon I mean any event over the marathon distance of 26.2 miles. My body celebrated by finally shedding its left big toenail to reveal a knarled replacement growing underneath. I have a fresh white one for a while. Nice :)


  1. congratulations! do you know what you total race mileage is? glad i'm not the only one shedding nails at the moment

  2. Sorry Kate, I haven't worked that one out. In recent years it has been around 1,200 miles per year in events, but in my first year it was 56 miles and one event.
