That's a very long way you went.

Dark is horrid and scary and cold is worse. Nasty cold. It biteses. I can clearly walk 6 miles in 3 hours carrying Too Much Stuff whilst Exhausted, but I don't think I could do it in the cold dark when I didn't know the way.

It does sound all pretty and lovely and outdoorsy fun.

So clearly next year you need better warm gear, better gloves, and a watch that beeps :-p

I had better warm gear, it was in a bag at the basecamp only about 4 miles away! What I need is to remember to _take_ the better warm gear with me in the dark...

I am divided on the watch that beeps question. I'm a crazy purist in some ways. On the other hand, gloves that can operate a phone - Yes, Yes, Yes.

A crazy bit of my brain has decided I want to try this. Not the full thing, just the marathon, this year...

urgh, they have a horrid website. Then run does sound sort of fun, but also dark and cold.

Did you see the hashers looking for people for the 24-hour thing? That'd be chunks of about 7 miles in the dark, maybe more achievable for dark-scared people? but it's soon, and maybe you are in pain.
