Despedida Run before leaving for KAEM13

Yesterday I ran my final group run in Santiago before I leave on Tuesday for South Africa for the KAEM. It was great to receive support from Lafuma and my fellow runners and friends. We ran into the hills from Mall Sport, and afterwards held a short presentation at the Lafuma store. The trail community in Santiago is fantastic and I'm grateful to be a part of it.

About to depart.

Happy to be running with a great group.

After the run I gave a presentation on the KAEM race and an overview of my training for it. It was fun to share my journey with the group and I hope I gave them some useful insight on what it takes for me to prepare for a multi-stage race.

Sharing some thoughts on training for multi-stage races.

    1. I presented in my very best Spanish and I think the slides help to get the points across...

  2. Very interesting. All the best in the KAEM race. Recall running with you in the 3000m inter house athletics, and recall seeing you in the early mornings training! BW.
