Sumary of Meet intrepid Elise Downing, who RAN 5,000 miles around the coast of Britain:
- In it, she explains that the route was never an issue, ‘I just keep the sea to my left, surely’, and that the hole in her back was caused by friction from her sports bra clasp wearing a big hole in a T-shirt she didn’t want to change because she had become ‘weirdly superstitious’ about taking it off.
- She said: ‘It wasn’t quite so bad in the winter, but in the summer the combo of heat/sweat/fewer layers made it a real nightmare and pretty much every day my whole back would be on fire.
- But it was actually a highlight – I stayed with so many amazing friendly people and discovered macaroni cheese pies’ Describing this image, Elise said: ‘An image taken in Plockton in the highlands of Scotland of my ridiculous tan line when my dad came to visit and brought me some flip-flops to wear.
- I had similarly defined shorts + T-shirt lines’‘Then secondly, I guess just the fact that I could actually do it.
