Over coming mountains
On Saturday I completed the 50km race at the Annapurna100 in 10 hours and 19 minutes, finishing in 25th position overall. As you can see, it was beautifully clear with incredible mountain views. It was hard running and serious climbing, reaching an altitude of 3500 meters but a magnificent experience that I'll never forget.
Trail running is hard. It takes a lot of preparation and above all, perseverance. The same can be said of working in Nepal. Saran and I are still trying to get clear answers to simple questions that will allow us to move forward with our Learning Resource Project but local officials leave us waiting and stringing us along with vaguely positive answers but no clarity. Just like on race day, there is nothing to do but try to keep moving forward one small and often very slow step at a time and that is exactly what we'll keep doing.
You can still sponsor my run and support Manisha UK. A huge thanks to everyone who already has!
