Peru (2019)

JohnnyParsons.jpg
The photo was taken in the 2019 MISTI SKY RACE. A race I have run twice. I always train on my own, so most of my pics are scenery stuff. I am not really a selfie man. This was taken at the summit (5825m, 19110ft in old money). I was goosed, it was baltic cold, the summit had taken a lot out of me. The descent is epic, a massive scree run that is like the Ben, but twice as long and 3 times as high! Anyway, it is a photo that means a lot to me 🙂
Plan B.jpg
(My alternative entry “Plan B” was taken on a training run the week before at around 5000m, the hill behind is over 6000m. The brand name of the local tuna does make me chuckle, childish git that I am!).
