/ NEWS: Fri Night Vid: 'When' by James Dunn
The film, which features mountain biking, running and climbing is a look at 'When' people with full time jobs fit in their passions.
The climber is Eddie Barbour and we loved his philosophy on life - girls, eating and getting ill! Excellent!

Great Vid James!
Whats the trail the guy does on the bike?
Great effort James. A lot of work has gone into that video.
Enthusiasm = Ability this time ;-)
Very nice video - well shot and edited. Great work!
Indeed. I shall no longer feel worthy enough to come into the shop and buy anything from her.
Excellent film, cheers. I watched it with my other half next to me and it added context to the eternal "Can I have a pass to go climbing please?" debate.
Aha, an old blipper!? Still blipping? Send me your link, would be good to have a browse - I haven't been in there in ages, just lost the motivation and was working so blips were turning very repetitive!
I think it might have been enthusiasm < ability though, from waning enthusiasm towards the end as I was tight on deadline!
Or check out the new Scottish sport guide that just came out recently, it's supposed to be an excellent guide;
Please could everyone who liked the film vote for James on the Fort William Mountain Film Festival (link below) to make up for my embarrassment at being on the home page of UKC in my running gear!
Thank you so much.
This reminds me of something I read somewhere which basically says the first thing you have to do when you have a goal you want to achieve is list the things you will give up in order to get there. Could be time, could be chocolate or a night in front of the telly, there will always be something and most reasons people (me included) give for not achieving is down to a conscious or unconscious decision not to make the sacrifice (after watching this can you REALLY say you just don't have the time!?)
Good effort James, you got my vote, keep up the good work
Isn't running what mountaineers take up once they have a young family? A run can be squeezed into a short time any time of day or night, whereas mountaineering doesn't really work like that!
> Isn't running what mountaineers take up once they have a young family?
Exactly! I can head out early and be home, completely destroyed, shortly after breakfast. Climbing on the other hand is a day out and subsequently much harder to arrange.
I agree with your comments, I can't recall where I read it either though, but it was a similar argument and very true!
Enjoyed that. Proper job! :)
