Mental in Morocco – Marrakech Marathon Result!

Mental in Morocco – Marrakech Marathon Result!

There was nothing pretty about that one. Gone was the feeling of complete control I had last week. I started out apprehensively and finished with a good time, but a twisted face, crossing the line in 3:37.01 by my watch.

My left calf was shot after 5 kms and I struggled to try to stretch it out, trying not to speed up too much with the worry I’d tear something. I’m ok, but tired and tender. I’m beginning to think 6 marathon races in 1 month was not a terribly wise thing to do… especially as I’ve only completed 5 in the 5 years I’ve been running to now. But we’re 10% through and 1 month in!

I did meet some absolutely awesome people on the way though and I can still walk, so everything’s gonna be sweet. Thanks heaps for the support everyone. Bigger report in the next couple of days.

    Hey, congratulations on the time, no wonder you looked so fresh at the finish, you’d had 14 minutes to recover before I got in! Nice website, i’ll get sponsoring you when I’m back in the UK and good luck with the other 46 – amazing!

    Hi Tristan,

    First able, excuse me for my English.

    I’m ABDELILAH I don’t know if you remember me, I’m the Moroccan who run with you Marrakech marathon and you took some pictures and videos showing us running.

    You promised me that you sent me its. I’m waiting ….

    Congratulation for your results for all the last Marathons.

    I saw all the videos you put at you tube and I more understand what you explain me during our running.

    I’m very happy to met you and I would have a pleasant recollection about the instant that we shared together.

    Good luck friend and perhaps we will meet on another marathon.

    Best wishes.
