Far from Existing
- December 22, 2020
One of my favourite moments from the Marathon des Sables; Dense & intense skies full of more stars than imaginable; Magical!; A beautiful compliment shimmering on the ocean’s surface.
Day 32: Pain meds & ceasing up fingers; Long duration events and finding psychological battles; Is this programmed?; Resets, visualisation and perspective. A shooting star or the International Space Station? Respect & admiration for Mark Slats
Day 33: Lowest mileage but most hours rowed; A New World Record by Mark; and now I’m the last Paddy on the water.
Day 34: Strong state – High Spirits; Living hard; Calm again = a unexpected longer 2nd half; Worked hard for every mile; Want big conditions again; Real Turmat for lunch.
Day 35: 5 Weeks! Lived every minute of them; No winds; Slow work and a week or more of it ahead; Controlling the moment; Wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, 588 days of work just to get to the start line.
