I took on my raid – er, ultramarathon – and completed it in a little over 23 hours. The weather was perfect, the scenery was stunning and the experience was unforgettable but it was tough and apparently about 1 in 4 runners wiped. Many thanks to those who offered well wishes and thoughts after my last post about this.
On a side note, and to try and keep this in relation to MMOs, amongst the tunes I loaded onto my MP3 player in preparation for the event I had the soundtracks to World of Warcraft (and expansions) and EVE Online – for as much as I’m not keen on the gameplay, I love the soundtrack. And, inspired by Zubon, I also had the Half-Life 2 soundtrack to listen to – the event route was annoyingly linear in parts.
