Day 1 - 20 miles
We officially started the MdS today. Over 800 runners took to the start and were off into the desert. The sand dunes and dunnettes are majastic up close and from afar, it is truly amazing! ran well for the first half of todays stage and then slowed down to save myself for the remaining days. The exposed sun spanked me, but I have recovered and I am looking forward to tomorrow.
Ill post on the blog as long as the internet keeps up.
