Well over a year ago I started prepping for what I knew was going to be one hell of a tough year. Lots of hilly training marathons from the freezing extremities of Molyeman Marathon in February in the snow on top of the downs through to one of the hottest marathons Three Forts in May again on the exposed downs with no shade. Not only was this going to a physical challenge but I have had to develop mental endurance, strength and stamina too.
