Yesterday we travelled back to Kawaguchiko for a 100km Ultra-marathon I will be running tomorrow!
Kawaguchiko is an extremely special place for us, as we have visited for not only races I have completed, but also climbing Fuji-san!
Our first attempt at climbing Mt.Fuji was a disaster!
The weather was atrocious and we were repeatedly warned to turn back. Being as stubborn as I am, I refused to turn and was determined to make it to the summit. After reaching the huts at the halfway point I was fuming to find out that even though we had paid a large sum of money to rest in a hut, they were all closed without warning.
We had to climb all the way back down in the typhoon, freezing cold, soaking wet, shivering and upset!
We decided not to give up, and immediately planned to return one month later, and to tie it with my 30th birthday.
This time the climb was PERFECT from start to finish, and we had the most wonderful day.
Catching the sunrise on the morning of my 30th was an unforgettable experience.
Tomorrow will no doubt be another amazing day!
Have a great weekend everyone, and remember to share your positivity with everyone you encounter.
