The Marathon des Sables is one of the ultimate multi stage endurance races in the world. It consists of running six marathons in six days across the Sahara desert. It’s been around for over 30 years and according to the Discover Channel has the reputation of being “one of the hardest footraces on earth”. It’s brutal, its challenging and according to pretty much everyone I speak to, a crazy race to do!
My book will be about my journey and what I’ve learned on the way. It will contain top tips and advice for the preparation and training as well as a diary account of what happened to me during the race. How it impacted on my body both physically and mentally. I’ll share it all, the good the bad and why its taken me almost two years to complete this challenge! I’ll also be incorporating top tips from other female athletes who I’ve interviewed for the Tough Girl Podcast.
