It's funny how ultra runners make everything sound so easy. They always give the impression when they have finished a massive event that it was no biggie – anyone could have done it.That in those difficult moments of extreme fatigue it becomes a case of just putting one foot after the other and keeping on keeping on.In this issue young ultra runner Jacqui Bell who recently competed at the Ocean2Alps event in New Zealand's South Island, said that she was suffering from severe plantar fasciitis on the first day.She was in agony but had no intention of not finishing. She strapped her feet, used extra heel raises in her shoes and found a way to run through the pain.She makes it sound like it was a straightforward choice –…

our relationship with running

Ahhh relationships. Our lives are made up of many, many of these things called relationships. I thought I might look at the official definition of that word ‘relationship’, so I asked Google (where else would we possibly go?), and here’s what popped up: “The way in which two or more people or things are connected, or the state of being connected.”This works for me; they’re about people, things and connection. So, what I was pondering on my last run, after being prompted that this column was due, was my/ our relationship with running.Now this particular day I was having a good run, one of those ones where you get to the top of a hill and (a) you’re still running and (b) you didn’t really realise that you were…

He was understandably tired. Exhausted. Frazzled, even, and perhaps that’s why he was…
