MdS 2009

This years Marathon des Sables certainly was a special one – first the rain and flooding prevented the race to start and the first stage had to be cancelled, then the weather made the road book (race schedule) irrelevant as organisers had to check every day where they could go running across the desert and where they could put up the camp every night. So competitors had a hard race for different reasons – temperature were kind with 30 degrees but the humidity, mud and heavy sand certainly made it a tough one. The 10 times winner had to pull out during the longest every stage – 91km in one go! Most of the Aussies survived and finished! It just shows that mother nature can be the real winner in such circumstances. The last week I was sick with flu and not much running done. Started again with slow jogging during the weekend and hopefully will be ready for some good, long runs over Easter and then for the second Blue Mountain training camp the weekend after. 5 weeks till The North Face 100.
