尼泊尔冲击马拉松赛回顾

Nepal Impact Race我还没有筋疲力尽并且我开始恐慌......。

Setting off from the scout hut to the race start line without having completed all my morning rituals, in fact, I’d be super blase about it all and ended up having to run to catch up with the group leaving for the marathon! That was because I wasn’treally在尼泊尔的赛车,我只是跑的那么潇洒马拉松离终点线捕捉全,半和万博开户10K的第一选手上半场。

然而,这不是理想的运行13.1(或更多!)没有得到企业做英里,尤万博开户其是当另一种选择是在警校一蹲厕所(我把厕所卷与我柜面野生之一是按顺序)。

我的计划是运行与马克,谁是没有真正的时间目标(四月运行伦敦后,他的第二个马拉松)完成全部26.2,比其他第一循环让他回来的时间截止之前,开始第二循环万博开户4.5小时。

直在起跑线上是一个可爱的下坡路段,大约2KM持续,并保持我们的组流道的相当接近。我们跑了,我们就一直在本周早些时候,并撞到建设成咄咄逼人的山羊之路(如果你看到在旅途中我的故事,你会看到它脑袋撞我们小组的各个成员!)。这个根据团队的影响是震撼人心的山,哇是它挑战的开始!

当我们穿过村子使我们的路,我们跑了过去一些其他影响运动员谁即将化险为夷起跑线的。万博真人娱乐影响错开他们的种族开始,人们普遍完成接近,这意味着有更多的人在那里当马拉松选手完成这使得一个真棒氛围,尤其是我们之间组。

We then made a quick (unsuccessful) pitstop at basecamp camping ground, before getting back on course and heading into the National Park. Both the full and half marathons went through the Shivpuri National Park, and we later found out that many of the local kids signed up for the 13.1 distance because it would be their first time in the park!

这里的道路是起伏的,小升/降整个部分,其中有许多我们走了,节约能源。有一个美丽的瀑布路口,手头警察来帮助我们过(实际上,他们并没有做太多来帮助我们,但他们确实需要经过我们的照片!)。

After about 10K of wide paths, the trail became narrower and it felt like we were having to walk a lot more of it. We decided that we would have to just run as much as we could, single file, otherwise we’d be out there forever! Not long after we bumped into Megs, one of the Impact staff and race directors, who ran/walked about a mile of Savage Summit with us. For some reason I had totally forgotten about this incline but it was long and brutal, and actually my biggest incline of the day!

该意见虽然对地形完全值得的。每次我们会圆一个角落两三分钟的山谷壮观的景色映入眼帘。

下来是辉煌的,虽然在部分相当的技术。我觉得我是跳,跳过和跳跃,而不是在时间运行。万博开户我们还设法超越其他两名选手...倒不是说是撞击点,但你知道,我是相当有竞争力!

巨大的感谢流亡医务人员和其他志愿者的医务人员设立球场周围急救站,派发蜂蜜三明治,凡士林,水/水合作用片剂和良好的祝愿。

I said goodbye to Mark at the second loop start, roughly 3 hours and 15 minutes after we started, and made my way back to the finish line area a mile away. Unfortunately, because I had a bib on and was running through town, many thought I was the first female marathon finisher!! I tried to correct them with little success.

其实,这是我第一次冲击马拉松终点线后DNFing在马拉维。Despite the fact I hadn’t completed one of the official races I was determined to have that finish line experience.

不过,我的乐趣不是终点辐透ographer role. I cheered in the winners of the marathon who had lapped us at Mile 12.5 and were worryingly close behind me, recognised the winner of the Half Marathon as my sixth form Geography Teacher (this world really is very small!) who was living with his family in Kathmandu.

This is the first time that the female marathon winner of the Nepal Impact Marathon has been a local Nepalese lady! She was amazing, as was the 11 year old that came third in the 10k!

Just when I thought I was safe to finally eat something, Mike came round the corner and into the finish zone. I stuffed the rest of my Clif bar in my mouth and sprinted across the pitch, catching him on the final 400m straight before dashing back to the finish line. Within the same sentence he told me that he wasn’t running again for at least 6 months, whilst also confirming that we were all going to the Jordan Impact in June!

然后我们在接下来的几个小时的赌注ween the sides of the field, catching the Impact Runners coming in for their 400m lap and crossing the finish line. This is actually my favourite thing about the running community, the camaraderie between friends and strangers alike at the finish line. Even though I’d only known most of these runners for 6 days, I still felt hugely invested in their race. This was summed up by the fact that Mike and I wouldn’t go and get food until Mark had finished the marathon, we were so worried about missing him finish!

Cortney had run with a couple of others, and upon finishing announced that it was one of her most enjoyable races ever! Trail running removes so much of the time pressures we can put on ourselves in road races. After she was disappointed with her Chicago Marathon, I’m so thrilled that she had such a fun race and reignited her love of running – time for you to sign up for some more ‘no-pressure’ races Cortney!

我这么和大家一起跑全程马拉松,实际上每个人都跑任何距离的印象,他们是富挑战!这地形26.2多英里(几个人拐错了弯,最终运行过程中向后的部分)是如此令人印象深刻。万博开户我个人喜爱选择半程马拉松的选择时间,为未来冲击马拉松赛事肯定会再做一次(Jordan 2020!

赛后啤酒......是的,我知道我已经共享的这张照片,但走进这个小山村的小店里买冰镇啤酒,散步回来,聊起我们的比赛的一大亮点。万博真人娱乐我们有所有在谈论我们最喜爱的后期治疗的比赛是什么万博真人娱乐,以及比萨饼,薯片/薯条,汉堡,健怡可乐和啤酒做梦。我们也得到一些薯条晚餐,但国产薯片和啤酒炉边好于我平时的后摇比赛夏克!

由于切口和影响团队的其他成员,对所有的志愿者,医务人员和运动员作出尼泊尔冲击马拉松比赛的日子,所以特别!
