Three days and counting


My bags are packed (and no I’m not planning on wearing/carrying all that gear at once...) and I’m flying out to Chamonix tomorrow.

If my training had gone well I’d be bricking it. In particular about the 3 big climbs laying in wait in the last 25 miles (where I’ve really struggled in both the 100s I’ve done before). As it is I’m fairly laid-back. Well apart from the list making and obsessing about Schmerbers and RETs (measures of waterproofness and breathability in case you’re wondering)... The plan is to try and enjoy the mountains and see how far I can get before the time cut-offs catch up with me.
