Running the XNRG South Downs Devil's Challenge 2017
It’s bank holiday weekend in the UK. What better thing to do than joining a bunch of nutters for a three-day foot race from Winchester to Eastbourne, covering 156 kilometers and many hills? I could not come up with a better idea, so here is how it went.
When you know you are in trouble
The moment you receive a message that goes like “I signed up for race X” you know you are in trouble. You have just committed your first mistake: reading the message. This causes you to drop what you are doing, check the website, let it sink in for a while just to finally reply “I have signed up, too”. Well, at least this is how it went in my case.
