I found out in May that I had been accepted as a participant for the 2016 Marathon Des Sables. This has always been on my list of mad things to do. Last year I stuck in a registration of interest and luckily enough I got in, panic quickly set in and I nearly chickened out. I paid my deposit of £500 and that was it, the commitment was made.
After a Herrons late dinner it was a night in my Camper van before a toot up Binnian from Carricklittle aiming for around 6 miles. My legs were tired. Once I got to the top and saw the stunning views I got the buzz and this was enough to head over the South Tor and descend passing the Blue lough. I then returned passing the many walkers heading up for the day.
