11 People take on the 'ULTIMATE 868 Mile ULTRA-marathon' from John O'Groats to Lands End
Sunday, 29 April 2012
It's not surprising that Tom was slow away this morning really considering his mileage to date and the amount of warming up he has to do on his Achilles. He also has some new Saucony trainers to break in too which are quite solid for the first 50-100 miles normally, so he has that to combat too.
The modifications really help with these size 14 bad boys as even though they are so big, the manufacturers always forget to add some further width to them the bigger they go.
He's got a long day in store and it's compounded by the bad weather that's already set in. Please support him here on the blog and then we can let him know at CP's that you are willing him onto Lands End.
