Yes, we're back - sorry I missed last week. If it's any excuse I was off on an action packed 4 days in Ireland. (Seriously - doing the Reeks District big 5 challenge: walking, cycling, surfing, kayaking and night SUP)
I will try to make up for the gap by giving you a bumper edition this week!

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"I LOVE FEELING PART OF THE MOUNTAINS"
- Nicky Spinks
A somewhat bonkers event I stumbled across on the internet...
Details: The Type 2 Fun Run
Where: Scottish Highlands
When: 31st August - 1st September
Why: "The Type II Fun Run is an ultra like no other. There will be no set course, no feed stations, no base camp, no massage tent, no mercy. The race will be won by strategy, not chiefly by speed. Only skilled navigators and those with the ability to embrace discomfort will make it. 30 hours, a mix of mandatory and optional checkpoints. Sound horrible? Do you like to sign up for horrible things? Then read on..."
