MdS 2007 - Race is Complete!

Good morning to you all!

It is a beautiful day here in Arizona where I am right now. Today for my own personal training I will get to ride my bike outside for 3-4 hours...can't wait.

Ironman Arizona is 2 weeks from today. Bring it on!!!

The 22nd Marathon des Sables is now completed. Lachen ran across the finish line Sat. morning with yet another 1st place finish as well as our Jay Batchen running across as the 1st American!! Jay ran a perfect race. He said he felt great the entire time and only has one small blister. Yeah!!!

Here is a link to the results, where you can see how the 62 Dreamchaser's runners thrived (note: some results may still be ranking in progress)! Congratulations to all of are now an MDS champion!!!

Below are a few photos that were taken 2 years ago at MDS. Lachen gave our daughter Annabella his race number! She spent her 2nd birthday at the MDS. The other photo is her daddy Jay at the finish line and then one of me with Lachen!

Dreamchasers is already close to half full for the 2008 MDS and we will have a training camp in Tucson AZ. in the fall. We look forward to seeing you all!
Here is a link to secure your spot for 2008 (or 2009):

Jay, when I told Jared Knapp that you were the 1st American at MdS after a couple of days, he asked if I expected anything less? Like DeNiro said to Billy Crystal in "Analyze this", "You're good, you!"
Congratulations, my friend!
