Friday 18 May 2012: Finishing the Bob Graham Round
While we were in Keswick we witnessed this chap (Paul Tierney @irunmountains) finish the Bob Graham Round. This is an insane running challenge, taking in 42 peaks, 74 miles in less than 24 hours. He did it in just under 18.
It was interesting to see the finish, there was a very small welcoming committee, and everyone involved does it just for the love it, there's no money involved. And yet it's an amazing achievement. The next time I see a celebrity singer or sportstar justifying their massive earnings because they've worked so hard, think of people who do this, for no reward other the achievement itself.
