As I alluded in my scheduled post yesterday, I am in the midst of a bit of a health scare of the female variety, hence no blogging the last week, I will hopefully be able to share more later next week.
Meanwhile I wanted to share a picture of another of our families athletes, so blessed are we to have so much talent amongst us. Whilst Alex was in Paris achieving his own PB in the marathon there, Zoe was in the Southern Moroccan Sahara competing in the Sultan Marathon Des Sables, a gruelling race said by many to be the toughest in the world covering 251km in six days with one rest day after the longest 75.7km leg over desert and rocky terrain. I should add that they have to carry a 7.5kg backpack with all their food and personal requirements for the whole race.
On the final day yesterday, Zoe (right in the photo) found herself in a podium position finishing third lady and 28th overall. I am not totally sure of the numbers, but close to 1,000 competitors finished the race so what a fabulous achievement and we are all suitably proud of her. And on Friday she and Alex both head off the Hamburg for yet another marathon !
Have a lovely Sunday everyone, we are promised 19 deg today so fingers crossed they get it right.
