MEMORIES FROM MDS VETERANS
Name this Dreamchaser
Guess who this is? Here’s a clue…he did MDS last year (when this photo was taken and he’s back again for more this year). Click HERE to find out who this is and to see more amazing photos and captions, courtesy of Patrice Clapacs.
My most memorable moment was Stage 4 of the 2005 MDS race...I remember running with Nattu ( a great man!) and then going into a sand storm together...from there we went through a check point and I wanted to work on my feet...I told Nattu to go on. What I didn't tell him was that I needed to be alone...Read MORE.
Oh how I remember MDS 1999. It was my first running event ever. I was a bit nervous, but meet some of the greatest people right from the start. They took me under their wing and helped me succeed beyond my expectations. Now for the fun stuff!
My luggage was lost forever. It had all my extra socks and extra race clothes in it, not to mention a bunch of nice stuff for after the race. So things were going great for the first day or two. I felt great and was taking it easy. But at night, I would take off my socks to knock out the sand and what ever else. As the days continued it became harder and harder to put my socks on they were hard as a rock and my feet looked like hamburger. I kept pushing it. My 50 mile day was the hardest. I could see the lights from camp, but it seemed to take forever to get to them. I was so beat up and struggling, but the race officials kept driving by to check on people. As they would come up, I put on my biggest smile and waved, as if to say I'm doing great. I then went back to wobbling my way back to camp.
The rest day after was great. The conversations in the tent were amazing and I will never forget them. My feet were so bad I was tearing up at times just lying there. Lisa came to my rescue and fixed my feet and let me were her pedicure sandals all day. We sipped hot chocolate with mini marshmallows that night, and the next day to the end of the race was amazing.
This race will forever live on in my mind. And you can't put a price tag on that.
