Ivana KolaricJun 8 2021, 8:24pmThank you to everyone. I'm so overwhelmed with all those messages, you are all so kind. :)

It was the perfect day and my best run ever. Good weather played a big role especially during the night making navigation less of an issue so I was able to stay good on my planned lines. As the summits passed without issue I was able to keep the positivity up and stay focussed which made me push as hard as I could till the end. I need to admit it's a very nice feeling to break Korina's record especially after I didn't finished last year. :)

A big thank you to John Murray, Tom Roche and Frank McIntyre for keeping me in good spirit and full belly all day long.

Well done to all the other recent completions and the very best of luck to those lining up!

For anyone thinking about giving it a it! The attempt day is just one small part of the experience. The months and months of recce's and planning are by far the most enjoyable running you'll get. It takes you to places you never frequent, improves your ability to survive in the hills alone and puts a smile on your face. I'd encourage more people, especially women to step up to the gate and enjoy the experience.

Thanks again everyone! :)
