I didn't mean it in a bad way and if that's how it came across I apologise.I must admit to being incredibly stupid or incredibly brave as I completed the MDS in 2003.
An even better one is the Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon - same format as MDS.(index). I did it in 2007 (badly) and am going back again this year.
You may have seen on the forum that I keep trying to promote it. Yes the organisers are friends and yes I am their UK agent but the main reason I plug it is because I love the event.
As I am not very brave I must be incredibly stupid.
I took the comment in the spirit it was intended so no need to apologise. Most people could do MDS - it is not about being incredibly fit it is about having the right mental attitude. Success comes from managing, managing your water, your food, your spirits and your feet.I didn't mean it in a bad way and if that's how it came across I apologise.
I think that someone would be brave to do this run. I mean 120F temps and sandstorms not to mention the sand!
I would love to do it but honestly, I don't think I could.
All I'll say is well done. That is some achievement!
Or incredibly affluent!!I looked into it and just thought that anyone who enters this is either incredibly stupid or incredibly brave.
It looks like one hell of a challenge!
