Spartathlon 2010. The day after

It was without doubt my toughest race ever. I finished with over two hours to spare but must admit there were times that I was doubting myself. With over 100K to go I started to hallucinate and thoughts of defeat were starting to enter my head, it took a lot of mental strength to keep going and I thought of all the friends back home and especially my Wednesday night crew and that's what kept me going. Each kilometre was dedicated to someone connected with Le Cheile A.C and I didn't want to let anyone down. It was that sense of responsibly that got me through the low points and you were all in my thoughts. I will do a more detailed update in a few days to include photographs and maybe go over how we completed the race.
Thanks for all the support.


  1. Congratulations on your finish. I was keeping track via SPOT, it looked like a daunting but incredible journey. Looking forward to hearing more details! Rest up!

  2. It's during a race like that when you find out what stuff you're made from. Questions were asked, and you managed to find the answer. You should be very proud, John!
