Not only was the weather perfect for a race but the country side was simply stunning!
29 km through Pine- & Rainforest, accross sandy beaches, up and down bloody steep hills and rugged 'high' country - 4 hours of pleasure with a 7 kg heavy backpack.
Denis, my running buddy, used the opportunity of my backpack training and added a few bottles of his Gatorades into my bag.
All these nice drinks and I could not dare to drink them - Denis took off soon after the start but could have been sitting around the next corner waiting for me to catch up with him....which never happend and I ended up carrying the (full!) bottles all the way to Bundeena.
At least it was good training - and I have almost figured out all the spots which are still chafing and need to be protected for Morocco.
