The photos from the mt lowry just came through..so here I am….Izzy’s legs in the background of the finish shot. I remember at the top of the ridge, as I rounded the corner, I spotted the photographer and laughed. I told them that I always remember-too late- that they are there and I should be running. But alas! I am always nearly on my knees. Ha!

    Looks like a pretty place to run/walk/stalk/crawl! There should be signs on race courses that give runners a bit of warning that there’s a photographer around the next curve.

      yes! Thats what I think..big signs so we can stop, pretty up, then run like hell past the photographer, smiling etc…And yes, It is a very beautiful place to crawl around gasping for air..the views are amazing!

    The Paardekoopers (sp?) put on some great events don’t they. We were taken by one of the ones down here – very informal/friendly without too much of the anal safety stuff.

    Is that a skort you’re wearing? Do you find it okay to run in? It looks really nice (if running gear is allowed to look nice!).

      The paardehardtospellers put on the Mt lyford down south..is tht the one you did? I’d love to do that, and have heard it is way tougher than the Lowry/extreme…one day I will!..and..i am wearing a sports skirt, attached is bikeshorts, but its a full skirt..I prefer running in skirts- big time. Im trying to get running skirts imported to nz..there is some very cool ones around ..arond America that is! ..and yep..it tis important to look good running (in a nonchalont way of course…)..
