Marathon des Sables 2007 – The Story Begins…

Hello Everyone…

As promised, I’ll be checking in with the Blog here to give updates about this year’s Marathon des Sables. I am not at the race this year, but my husband Jay and 61 Dreamchaser clients have arrived and will be competing in the 22nd edition of the MDS Race.

It’s a magical race and I will try to offer you some insight as the race progresses.

There was a great article about the race in the Albuquerque Journal, written by Jennifer Hoffman. Jay and I met Jennifer in Santa Fe and shared dinner with this great writer. We are so pleased she will be a Dreamchaser participant in the 2008 MdS race. Click here to read Jennifer’s article and learn more about the MdS race.

Here is a list of the Dreamchasers we’ll be cheering for – along with their race numbers. When the official race begins, the race website ( will have a place where you can send an e-mail to an MdS competitor that will be delivered to them in the evenings. It’s tough for competitors to send e-mails (they must wait on very long lines and can only send one e-mail at a time), but anyone who has done the race will tell you that hearing from your loved ones after finishing a tough stage is PRICELESS!

I’ll be posting more MdS updates!

Have a great day everyone,
