Batrun Therapy

There’s something about running in the mountains at night. It’s definitely not the most obvious place I would’ve guessed my trail running obsession progression would take me, but here I am strapping on a headlamp and getting ready to chase that bouncing spot of light up Devil’s Peak, Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. It’s just me and about 100 other nutters getting ready to spend our Saturday evening getting smashed in the face by gale force winds, ignoring cramp and the pain of those long climbs, all while trying to stuff enough jelly babies in our mouths to make it all seem okay… Yep, it’s Batrun 2017 time!

LTC Together #7 – Slopes of Devil’s Peak

We called 2016 to a close with our December edition of LTC Together with Totalsports and celebrated a year of leaving the couch with a run on the slopes of Devil’s Peak. Tammy and I had been using this exact route as a weekly time-trial in our prep for UTCT 65km. Now that the big race was over, we could share it with the runners at our LTC Together event 🙂
