    Well done. Welcome to the club.

    50K is my favourite distance.

    @MeanderingMammal Really?!! What app can I stalk you on? :smiley:

    Strava is the best bet.

    Partly, they're much more relaxed affairs than road races and partly the psychological side; they strip the emotions bare.

    Thanks for sending me the PM. I didn't see the tag. All by yourself, until the very end for moral support!! I can't even imagine!! Do you run with music? And did you run with water? Very happy for you that there were no lingering side effects after the race! Congratulations on being able to cross this accomplishment off your bucket list!

    Cheers, and thank you!

    No, I don't run with music. I need to hear cars coming.

    Plus, my thoughts and the run are more than enough to keep me occupied.

    Yes, I had water in my Camelbak (running backpack with a "bladder" and tube to drink from, and lots of pockets to store food, tissues, first aid). My route also went past a drinking tap that I used a few times.
