The Tor des Géants  race start today! This great mountain race around the valley of Aosta kicks off today and I wish the runners organisers volunteers and sponsors a great time. I personally know this race very well having done the first and a hundred miles of the second, it is one of the most joyous things I have ever done in the mountains. For an account of the first race read here.......
I woke up this morning feeling weird that I wasnt in it as so many friends will be there, then I felt a more rational feeling of relief that I wasnt facing the 200 hundred miles!
Special feelings go towards my suffering friend Beat who a week ago did the Petite Trotte à Leon and with blisters will be lining up for the Tor this morning, you diserve it Beat. Beats feet will be beat!
