    Berlin Bolt, The King of the ultra distance, was the first person who I knew, that had completed an Ultra. Not just one, but many. I was intrigued and in awe, of anyone that could plan for and complete such a distance? I know that many other RealBuzzers have completed ultras and just the thought of it makes my head spin. So what on earth happened on the 1st of June? I think my hand must have "accidentally" slipped on the ENTER button, when I was viewing this on the lap top:

There is a totally different mind set, the watch is secondary and the times nowhere near so pressurising. You run for fun, and it's fab. How that button accidentally got hit, only you will know of course, but you will thank your clumsy fingers many times over I am sure. On (up and down) a yard!' added 2nd Jun 2015

    • HOBSCowboy 'Superb! You'll love it Simmy. When you fall over you go squelch rather than ouch. You look at your watch only to see whether what your eating should be classed as breakfast, lunch or dinner. Oh and you chat a lot. A great slip of the finger' added 2nd Jun 2015

    • Simonetta26_2 'I feel a bit of a fraud: it follows the disused railway line from Guildford to Shoreham-by-Sea and is therefore pretty FLAT! 38 miles, though. I like the fact noted, that it's WHEN I fall over, not IF!!!!!'' added 3rd Jun 2015

    • Berlin_Bolt 'Definitely not a fraud young Simmy. An Ultra is an Ultra. Respect goes to you. Hopefully you don't fall, but if you do fingers crossed for a soft landing. Nice and steady now. Time on your feet is well spent till then. If on the race start you feel too slow go slower ! Different world of running and a very friendly bunch of runners too. Nutters?, yes! I'ts AWESOME :))) ' added 3rd Jun 2015
