It does take alot of grit and determination to run such distances yet its a challenge I really enjoy,

Though after my experience in Hungary I learn't

"That courage surpasses Freedom, and that Persevance against adveristy brings reward "

as an invitation to run Turin to Roma in Italy was given to Heather by the Italians after the race.

Heather now needs to secure this offer hopefully JUNE 2012

" I love Itaily I was over joyed hopefully 2012 will see me compete !! Benedi're."


Poem by Heather.

Entrapment imprisonment, Undefiled, Companionship?

Comrades in pilgrimage!

Cumbersome, aloof, sustanance, swollen, inflamed feet

"ignore the pain" shouts Edit.

You run through it (Edit was former world champion of both 100km & 24hr for hungry )both my distances


No, I treat it

"Blister kit"

Illdefined: perceieved, perception, conformity!

Focus, abuse, overcoming, cohesion!

"Gallentry, foolery, legs swell, boil in the heat, rejuvanation, reprieve,disregard.

Enoughs enough, 394 miles, 633,579km.

"Courage surpasses Freedom, and Persevance against adveristy brings reward "
