So… tomorrow I’m signed up for the 43km Lairig Ghru race through the Cairngorms. I got my entry after arriving in Europe. For the record, this is probably not a good idea! I’m pretty certain I’ve had too much fun the last few weeks and the legs are over cooked for racing…. Hmmm.
Let’s see how I go, and how I pull up! The hard part will be making the one and only cut-off: 14km in 1.5hrs and not all road.
My motivation? I read the book Cairngorm John, which inspired me to sign up to the race. I’m interested to see how I find it – there’ll be only 250 participants and I’m used to over a thousand. It’s BYO map! Last year’s “winner” ended up coming 2nd because they took the long route through the final town!
Had an easy jog today along Nairn beach to get the legs race ready :P
