Races and Challenges Mike O'Connors Ultralist Carnethy Reports
All of a sudden I was enveloped in yellow flashing LEDs - these turned out to be a patch of buttercups. (Olly Stephenson on the WHW)
I've done about eighty miles and now I'm feeling it. My head is swimming and the pain in my knee has returned with a vengeance. I begin to hallucinate. (David Waterman)
I've seen Boeing 747s pull up beside me, and green lizards on the road that don't exist, a gal clad in a bikini rollerblading in front of me that didn't exist (Andy Bowers, on the 135-Mile Badwater Ultramarathon in Death Valley, USA)
