We were extremely well prepared, having done a recce of the whole course and trained well, but sadly that wasn’t enough to finish @utmboman. I felt from km 1 that my legs were heavy and that this wasn’t to be my day. I initially ran with the lead pack, but started to struggle when we hit the first big climb after CP2. I was breathing harder than I did at 4.000 meters in Nepal a week ago and knew things weren’t right. I decided to wait for @elisabetbarnes in CP3. We ran together for five hours and had a great time❤️! Then, Elisabet started to vomit just before the 50k mark / CP8. We stopped and tried to sort things out, but she couldn’t keep any food/drink. We waited to see if she got better, but that didn’t happen. Food, coffee and water came back up again at the speed of light. And belive me, you need energy if you want to survive this course. I could have continued even if Elisabet DNF’ed, but I was just not motivated enough to do it solo.
I have unfinished business in Oman. Last but not least: a huge congratulation to those who finished this race! It’s a brutal course as evidenced by the 56% drop out rate so a fantastic achievement.
