Getting called out by Trail Running magazine on Twitter with the likes of Kilian Jornet, Emelie Forsberg and a host of elite ultra and mountain runners was a pretty epic experience.

The premise of the challenge was simple. Create a short video of why you love trail running in the summer.

Now I had many ideas, from quaffing some Jimmy’s iced coffee, running at 4AM in the morning light to descending mountains in speedos.

First off, I live in the Flatlands of Milton Keynes, so any epic mountain valleys were off the equation and with an ill partner, early mornings were a little unfair on her.

In the end, the two ideas I filmed were spur on the moment when out running and after I finished.

Running above all must be fun, if you loose the fun, its not worth it anymore.
