Now, after a change in attitude and a new approach, I found my strength and motivation improved to the point of running the 25km George Mountain Ultra Trail Race (George MUT). My longest mountain run ever.
"I gripped the first rung in the gyrating “ladder”. “Focus, think, concentrate” I said to myself. All I had to do was ascend this darn thing for 20 metres and I would be on the summit plateau at over 3000 metres. Yet so much could go wrong, especially with my cavalier finesse for not paying attention."
