This morning a had my (now) usual jog – 4,5km (just under 3 miles) D+ 140m (460ft). One third is on a steep rocky path and the rest on a descending untarred lane and then on a small road. My son, « C », ran is first marathon when he was just over 15 – when I ran mine. It was in Switzerland because they don’t bother checking the ages of competitors. He’s been running ever since – except when E and K were young. And now E and K do run ! K was second (on the podium!) for his two first races. E was first twice but he twisted his ankles and he’s been advised to cycle for some weeks. E’s goal ? UTMB ! And his models Kilian Jornet and François D’Heane.
