An Cafe - 365 days

Well another Marathon des Sables and another year goes by... I must say that this year's race was most satisfying and a real testament to a hard year of training. Jenny of course ran another blinder and it was great to have her there with me to share the highs and lows of 156 miles of hard desert terrain.

It hit 54 degrees on the long day and it for me was the sandiest of all the races I have ever done. No wonder it's called 'The Toughest Footrace on Earth'.

I did it slightly different this year and ran alone for all but a couple of the 40 hours of my race and I enjoyed the solitude of running to my music. Hats off to the 236 who finished in front of me and I will be trying even harder next year to get into that magical top 200 one again.

If you are going next year... see you there.
