Another great story of perseverance and running long distance!
From our guest:
"I'm an American expat now based in Scotland. I completed my first ultra last week, a 50k along the Great Trossachs Path in Scotland's first national park. I actually missed the race that I was due to compete in -- the Great Tartan Skidaddle -- because on race day, I was in hospital on a drip after being rushed in by ambulance because of a blood infection due to pneumonia (ait was approaching sepsis and apparently quite dangerous). I was gutted to miss the race. I recovered well and decided to run the race route as a solo affair with a friend from my trail running crew (the Carron Valley Trail Runners) and my wife. I even spoke to the race director after I completed the route. So I did complete my first ultra, just a week later than planned."
Enjoy the show.
