Desert Stinker

Ready to break some sweat? How about a mad dash of soft sand running in and amongst some amazing desert dunes? Recently I witnessed the inaugural Desert Stinker desert run, shooting for my great friends at Urban Ultra who organised the race to raise funds for two amazing charities. It was a night run followed by an early morning sunrise run … two runs back-to-back covering either 20 or 40kms.

Being out in the dunes gave me race envy … gosh I would have loved to have been running. The conditions were perfect, the scenery amazing and the crowd inspiring … I can’t imagine a better racing cocktail.

The last quarter of 2012 has been fantastic business-wise yet has certainly taken its toll on my chance to train. Admittedly, this is a nice problem to have but one what is the cheapest repair shop that remains frustrating nonetheless, as I just love hitting the trails. For the second year in a row, I’ve pulled out of competing in Hong Kong’s Vibram 100 because I’ve simply been unable to log the mileage required. Bummer, but enough of the self-pity … I hope the Desert Stinker is repeated. The girls did a grand job in pulling it together viagra no perscription uk and judging from all those who raced, it would be safe to say that everyone had a great time.
