18th placed Eliot at 3am after running 102 miles non stop in 21.17 hours
Hello Peeps, back from our travels after a really great trip and now trying to buckle down to reality with all the washing and 20 deg which is a bit of a culture shock after averages of 40 deg. Thanks to all of you who kindly visited when I was away, your comments really are appreciated and of course welcome to my new followers, it's great to have you here.
Now I know lots of you are expecting holiday photos but alas I have none to share as I forget to pack my camera........how on earth I did that I have no idea and it's still in my desk drawer. I did contemplate taking some photos on my table but decided carrying that around in the heat was not really an option, but hubby did quite a lot of videoing so I might be able to get some stills from that when he edits his footage.
So meanwhile I thought I would share some photos of some of my mega sporty clan, this time it was Eliot in the spotlight doing the North Downs Way 100 race last weekend. It's actually 102 miles which he completed in 21.17 hours and came in 18th..............some achievement and naturally we are so proud of him.
'Team Eliot' plus Bernie and George for added moral support
Due to the gruelling nature of the race runners are required to have a support team responsible for check points and who can run with them during the second half of the race, so Zoe and Alex took on that role running 30 and 22 miles respectively to provide encouragement to Eliot, whist his wife Veronique provided the 'back room' support and also had awesome tops and jackets made for 'Team Eliot'.
And the coveted belt buckle awarded to those finishing in under 24 hours
