There are a number of recurring themes in this blog – poor grammar from me, dull stories from Andrew and an epic quest to be the fastest Todd up the Stornoway War Memorial.
You can read about it here.
I was the fastest until Andrew beat my record but now we are both slower than a local runner. His time looks difficult to beat.
I wasn’t going to beat that this week especially on the last run of my 100 mile week but I could do something else….I could become a LEGEND!
The Strava ‘Local Legend’ achievement is awarded to the athlete who completes a given segment the most over a rolling 90-day period regardless of pace or speed.
This is one I could win! All I had to do was run the war memorial segment enough times to get it. I also needed 8.8 miles to complete my 100. So I decided I’d run the segment again and again until I became a LEGEND!
I managed 10 times which added to a couple of others over the last 90 days put me into an unassailable position.
Andrew took the news well
101 miles done. I had to add on 1 to walk home from the War Memorial.
Overall time was 18 hours 17 minutes. Elevation was 3,324 meters.
Now time for a rest!
