TDS course reccy with DadWeek by week and day by day I am watching Chamonix transform with some serious runners, in some serious kit, running some serious kms and hearing alot more English conversations! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… I mean Ultra Trail mont Blanc week.

This week I was super happy to welcome my Dad to Chamonix. Two years ago he popped his Chamonix virginity and took on the best of UTMB (go hard or go home) and now he returns to join me for the TDS race and the holiday after! It’s so nice to share these moments with him and he keeps me sane when I start to freak out about how long and brutal this race is.

TDS - learning to use the polesI moved “homes”, now living in Argentiere with my Dad in a tent “glamping”. It’s a lot of fun and even better to have some new trails around, different peaks to reach and places to explore.

Now into the single digits there are 9 days until race day and I remain both excited, nervous, grateful and proud of where I am and what I am doing.

Time to rest up, eat up, sleep up and smile along the way!

Merci! x
