What does it take to train for something like this? Here is a bit of a photo essay giving you a glimpse into how much preparation went into training for MdS – I trained for over a year in all kinds of weather conditions… We faced so many challenges!
Today marks 100km. So far, so good, but my feet are taking a beating – blisters! I ran through dunes and over the jebel covered in sand. Tomorrow is the big distance day: 86km in one go! Not easy. I really hope this inspires people to sponsor me and donate.
The first MdS race day spanned a distance of 30.3km through amazing scenery: dunes, rocky hills, big spaces and a big blue sky. I took it easy today and finished in just over 6 hours – a respectable placing!
As a runner, I sometimes forget how important it is for me to look after my feet. After the marathon run at Mt Kilimanjaro, my feet were so blistered up!
