Marathon Des Sables

Known as the toughest foot-race on earth, 6days, 6+ marathons back-to-back across the Sahara Desert, carrying all your own kit – who in their right mind would want to do this? I ran it to raise money for research into Lupus. Sadly despite good intentions, the Marathon Des Sables became the Marathon Des Sades. Read my journals as I crumble like the weakling I am… and if you still want to do it – seek immediate psychiatric care.
