Ben Nevis Race 2012

Well this year's Ben Nevis was every bit as challenging weather wise as last year.  Fine lower down but luckily we were warned that it had turned bad at the top. Time for a quick change into a long sleeved Merino top.  What a cracking bit of kit.  Good run to the top although the sight of  Jon Hart from Lochaber MRT with a handful of Jelly Babies was very welcome indeed.  Downhill as ever was not as good and I lost a good number of places pussy footing around.  Took 6 minutes off last year's time though.  Sandra and Alison were at the finish which was a good thing as I got massive cramps which Sandra managed to release.  By the time we hit the Real Food Cafe the endorphins had really kicked in.  A really enjoyable day!
