Just watched an brilliant  film on the 2011 Dragon's Back Race in Wales......so inspiring. Watch the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwp8kY4Z7Fk 

I have decided to write my top 5 Coolest impossibles in order of date / future goals. 

1) Leicester Full Marathon, October 2014 (PB. 2011 of 4:00:44)


2) Charnwood Hills Bowline Race, February 2015 


3) Race to the stones 100k (July 2015 Race)


4) Snowdon Marathon or Race



5) Dragon's Back Race (MY most Ultimate Cool Impossible)


There's nothing else worth doing more, than doing something for the sake of doing it. 

 Sake: Definition - to indicate something that is done as an end in itself rather than to achieve some other purpose:

Doing it.
