Nine months ago, running through
Mongolia in the Gobi March seemed so random, surreal, and so far away on the
calendar. I knew the minute I saw my training partner’s photos of his Racing
the Planet 4 Desert Race
in Atacama, Chile, I had to do one of these races. It was a visceral physical response
and I literally felt it in my gut. As we talked about it further, tossed around
different races and locations, and consulted our calendars for availability, serendipitously
the Gobi March popped up. What! My mind started to swirl on the entire
scenario. Beautiful scenery, more horses than people, soaring birds, shamans, a
self-supported multi-day 250km ultramarathon through Mongolia. Hmmm. Well….All
this trail running and hiking has gotten me in good physical shape and has increased my endurance level. And the recent trail adventures
I have experienced only encourage and inspire me to open and challenge myself
more and say “YES.” And I just got my passport renewed. Mongolia seemed like a
gift of divine timing and I love divine timing. With that, I said “YES” and signed up for the July 2018 Gobi March 4Deserts Race.
Finishing is winning!
