In July I ran the Spartan Ultra Beast in Nine Mile Burn in the south of Edinburgh. It was my second Ultra Beast after the Ultra Beast Hawaii I did last year with my friends. I was running on my own, although I knew some people that were also racing and stayed at the same hotel. As expected we had lovely Scottish summer weather, which means cold temperatures, heavy rain, wind and fog. Perfect conditions to test my wetsuit gear, and it turned out to be the right decision to wear it. It was the perfect event to test my gear for World’s Toughest Mudder 2017.
