Strathpuffer, the toughest 24 hour race in the UK, is in 9 days.
One of our team is currently out of action with a flu thing.
It's snowing over the course. The permafrost is thick.
Reports say we can expect more snow, more ice, more wind, more sub-zero.
Maybe even some freezing rain and sleet during the night of the race.
We've made sure that a teapot is on our kit list.
I'm taking a hot water bottle for the bottom of my sleeping bag.
