I don’t think of myself as an ultra-runner.
I am just a bloke who has run a couple of ultra-marathons.
I was looking for some way to mark the fact that would be 50 in May 2012, and could not find any organised event that grabbed my imagination.
I wanted something that would be a personal challenge, preferably with a “50″ theme.
I am to chicken to jump out of an aeroplane, and I don’t have the attention span to commit to something over 50 weeks (or even 50 consecutive days)
So I decided I would attempt to run 50km per day for 5 consecutive days.
The first run was on Sunday 27 May 2012, and I finished on Thursday 31 May 2012.
