>Look What I Can Do!>London to Brighton 57 mile ultramarathon race report
This has been an epic weekend for me just gone, the culmination of 9 months training and hard work, it was made even sweeter when at 13.4 miles into it I reached my 1500 miles for the year which allows me to hit 2000 miles by the end of the year if I continue the training at the current level.
My apologies for the length of this report, it was a long race measuring 57.4 miles and there is a lot to say

You'll ruin your knees!
Fantastic! Congratulations... I enjoyed the report, have been looking to hear something all day!

Fantastic Jerry! You've even got me slightly tempted to try this mad race next year, only slightly though!
I cannot comprehend 57 miles of running. Hat's off to you mate!
Congratulations. Great report. The pictures were lovely and really added to the report. Tell me, what did you eat /drink after the run?
Directly after the run I was given a 2 litre bottle of water of which half was drunk and the other half went over my head and then onto my legs.
About an hour after the run after we got home I drank a lovely cup of SWEET tea, I couldn't face anything to eat especially sweet stuff even though my girls had made a "Well Done" cake. So at about 11.00pm that night I had a Marmite sandwich, 2 bottles of cider and some peanuts.
On Monday and Tuesday I had cravings for all things protein and fruit based
I just now got to read your report. Great work!
Congratulations on a fantastic achievement, and kudos for the gripping write-up. Any report that has the phrase "greasing my nuts and arse crack" in the second paragraph is going to grab the reader's attention. That never gets old.
But seriously, thanks for sharing this experience.
He who has the best time wins. Jerry
