However, my wonderful wife Louise has set herself the target of running the Ben Nevis race in September and I have got caught up in some of the training. It's been quite fun!
We ran up and down from Claggan in just over three hours which I was very happy with for a training/recce run. Louise ran it again today with another friend and got a view from the top. It was a rare dry day in a summer that has been wet most days. The mountain crags are pretty wet but we have had odd dry days to enjoy some cragging in the glens and the classic ridges of Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. In the damp weather running is a great way to enjoy the mountains and I could be tempted to do more. I wonder what my race time would be if I ever really went for it.
