Likeys Brecon Beacons Ultra Marathon.
I’ve discovered vegan cheese sandwiches. I did pit them against a Gu energy gel an hour later and the cheese sandwich (squashed and soft where the Vegan cheese and mayo has bonded at a molecular level) was far superior – I left my bonk phase within 3-5 minutes of said sandwich. Anyway, this blog is not about food. But if it was I would tell you that during the 46 miles over the Brecon Beacons I ate 2 big cheese and mayo sandwiches (they were great), 2 Naked bars and some chocolate raisins.
Below are some of the photos I took during the race, I was told I came 17th which i’m well happy with, although there could some some confusion with the number 30 that I was also told – ill have to wait and see. Time 8hr 22mins.
Two loops of a pretty easy (and i’m using this phrase in comparison with the harder 40 mile ‘Might Contain Nuts’ race ran in the same area) course taking in only two ‘peaks’ (done twice) and a fair dose of canal and track/ road.
I had a great day.
