In March this year I am travelling to Morocco to participate in the Marathon des Sables. It is going to see me running, walking or crawling 151 miles across desert terrain, in extreme temperatures, carrying everything I need. At the age of 46 (47 at the time of the run) most of my family keep telling me I ought to know better. Everyone else I know seems to think I am just barking mad. While I keep myself reasonably fit, I have never done anything like this before and it is a physical as well as a logistic challenge to be as prepared as I can be. I plan to update this blog as I build up my training and equipment preparation over the next two months.
