The view from the hotel in Chamonix. Big scary mountains….

We flew into Geneva Sunday morning and got a bus to Chamonix. The weather was gorgeous, sunny with temperatures about 20 degrees and it felt really good to feel the heat of the sun on our skin. 
We spent the day exploring Chamonix and planning the coming weeks running. We are hoping to start out with a fairly long first day and get some extra miles in the bank while we’re (hopefully) still fresh. The very loose plan at this stage is to run about 50k done tomorrow. We reckon it will take somewhere between 10-12 hours as a one of the mountain climbs look like taking 3-4 hours for less than 10k…. 
This might be stupidly ambitious but we won’t know till we start. 
I often think that naivety is a big key to success. 
If we had any idea how hard or stupid something was before we began we never would start. 
Kick off is at 7am….
