The Cold Truth by Sandra Marichal

Watch “The Cold Truth: An Expedition to Antarctica” by Sandra Marichal, an #up2degrees documentary about the aircon of our planet: Antarctica. Sandra says:
“Every day is magical… Every day has a beauty I’ve never seen. It’s a place that makes you feel very humble to be invited on the planet – and the least we can do is to protect and respect it.”

MdS Day 4

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.

MdS Day 1

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!
