Race Report 2015: Robert Edward Pinnington
Endlich...it is one of those German words, a bit like eng ( that means a tight space) that sums up a feeling better than an English one. It means a sort finality so much more all-encompassing than the word finally. When it has taken over four years and three failed attempts to achieve something it really does mean a lot.
This does not mean the end of my ultra-running career, more the beginning. Now that I have finished my dream race, after three previous failures, I feel I have the right to call myself an ultra-runner. Prior to this there was evidence that I could complete the distances, but there was no proof I could actually run them.
