Ski Marathon diary

The great ski-off started on Sunday morning just after dawn – people crunching by with their gear, the excitement was palpable…. as we get in place it seems like there are only a handful of us…

but then all that changed – the queues to catch the train started building up and before you knew it we were standing shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of keen and pepped-up marathoners – what a buzz!

Mind you actually getting started was a bit of a wait – the crowds were so dense once we reached the starting line it took us 10 minutes to even get moving…

but when we did, what a feeling! The weather was perfect, everyone in great spirits and it was almost disappointing to cross the finish line – I wanted to go back and start all over! Well I will – next year!!
