Well it is safe to say the title to this blog post is something I never ever thought I would be writing. Having been such a huge fan of The Running Channel for many years and secretly always dreaming of filming with them, actually working with them started in the most unremarkable way possible.
An early morning email, followed by an early morning phone call and that was it; I was off to Chamonix in a few short weeks to take on the MCC race at the UTMB. Looking back it was all such a blur and before I knew it I was meeting the two complete strangers who would be filming me at Heathrow airport before I got on my first flight since March 2020. By the time I boarded my flight back those two strangers were friends having taught me how to present, helped me along the way during the race and eaten way too many pizzas together to count.
I won’t spoil the video which you can watch below but honestly, the few days spent filming with the awesome guys at the Running Channel and finally being back in the mountains of Europe after far too long was one of the best experiences in my life. I cannot thank The Running Channel and inov8 enough for letting me loose in the mountains and for being so kind at helping a complete presenting novice look a little less awkward and a lot more epic.
Right that is enough talking from me, grab the popcorn and click watch…
