Just like that the 2nd race of the Grand Slam Plus series has come to a close. I can’t believe it. The race was a complete success with winning the female division, and placing 6th overall in a time of 29:10! This success included pacing myself, training really smart, and most importantly putting the right fuel into my body to set myself up for success. When it comes to food out there, it is a very fine dance between understanding your body and the climate that it will be in. it is also a fine dance between looking at your own body weight and how much is enough to ensure that you are racing at optimal potential. Too often folks can get caught up in the hype of making their pack as light as possible and then they will end up sacrificing on their food allotment. So let’s take a peek at how I prepared for the 4 Deserts Sahara (Namibia).

Pu’er will take place in Pu’er, Yunnan Province on May 28 and 29, 2016. There are two categories - 50K and 100K, both of which lead competitors through the vast sub-tropical forest in Western China to the borders with Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar, where Chinese minorities and Han Chinese have lived together since ancient times. The course will take competitors through forests, tea fields, coffee plantations and villages - competitors will experience many different types of terrain, but mostly trails or dirt tracks. The total elevation gain is 4832M for the 100K and 2834M for the 50K. Pu’er in Yunan is one of the most beautiful regions in China and the race goes through it at the end of dry season.
