Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

We passed Jenny at the 5 mile point today, merrily running along - not bad for her first hour of the day. She has a 1:8 hill to negotiate before she gets to us at the 11 mile point.

This Lady is not for stopping and she is looking to run right thru the day. She says she can cope with the running, it's the morning rigamortis that she dreads. Let's hope there's only one more start like the one we had today to overcome. It was overwhelming to watch as Paul kick started her this morning... Her whole mindset changed in less than an hour. She really wants this record!

The best lift for her was looking at the map and seeing just how far she has come...

Mary and Sir Michael, be very proud of your Jenny - she's such an inspiration and made of Pure Welsh Steel. home of Ireland's 9bar M2M Ultra.


  1. Keep it up Jen. You're making my challenges of yesteryear look insignificant now - well you have been for a while haven't you. I wonder how long it will take to lose the "thousand yard stare" when you've done it (which you will)?

  2. You're doing brilliantly Jen, we're all following you and are so impressed with your efforts thus far (particularly given the fine Irish weather you're having) - keep it up - you're a star! Graham Clifford

  3. GO JEN!!!! You are doing a fantastic job. Liz and myself are following you all the way but could do with a few less of the heart stopping moments - we're not sure if we will last the next couple of days! :-)
    Fantastic to see Richard Donovan running with you yesterday - what a star!
    In spirit, we are with you all the way to the end and we know that you can do it.
    Stunning performance. Well done!
