The WHW Race is so much more than just 2 days in June.
It is now half way through November which means that is it is half way through the entry period for the West Highland Way Race 2014. Lots of people will be waiting anxiously for the end of November to discover whether or not they have a place in next year’s race.
I haven’t entered this time around. Despite it being the best thing I have ever done, I shall be trying different races, though I do hope to be involved supporting the race in one way or another.
The West Highland Way Race is all consuming, especially for a first-timer. 5 months on from the race and it still influences me. Apart from my ongoing achilles injury which I picked up as a result of not resting sufficiently after the race there are other little reminders, like the favourites list on the BBC Weather website which popped up this afternoon and which made me smile at the pervasive nature of the race.
