I didn't complete a 100km ultra by my 50th. 80km achieved before 53 years, still working on it...

Shoes did well
The Inov-8 Ultra 290 shoes worked well. They had only been worn-in for a week of walking to work and a 3.5km slow run around the block before the race. During the event I gradually became aware of pressure on the inside of my foot - where in the shop they had pointed out that my foot tended to push over the side of the sole. This is the widest point of my wider foot. The discomfort was irritating and if there had been another 50km to go might have become a real issue. Apart from that I can't fault my shoe choice. I didn't get any black toenails or blisters. I'm hoping that the shoe will gradually stretch a little across the width and will be OK for the next long event.
