MdS Race Diary: Stages 3 and 4

Days (and nights) in the desert prove brutal for our Marathon des Sables blogger.

Stage 3 (22 miles in 31C heat): 4:34:30
Stage 4 (51 miles in 39C heat): 14:10:25

Jamie says: I finished the long stage last night, running 51 miles in just over 14 hours. It was brutal. The terrain was relentless - it started with a climb that made the Devon ultra look flat and continued to be horrid. 20K of dunes and the rest on very uneven ground. I got in just before 10:30pm, immediately threw up and had to spend 40 minutes in the medical tent.

This is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. My body is slowly shutting down, everyone's emails are massively helping and knowing you are all behind me gives me a massive lift.

My feet look like they have been run over by a hippo and I scratched my cornea two days ago so can't see out of one eye. I hope I can make it through - we have a marathon tomorrow followed by 10 miles on Saturday.

Jamie's words say it all - it doesn't get much tougher than the Marathon des Sables. If you're as awed by his progress as we are at RW Towers, you can sponsor Jamie online.

The full width and breadth of the medieval era is seldom drawn upon. Governments, for instance, tend to be feudalistic evil empires or oligarchies, and are usually corrupt, despite the greater variety of the actual Middle Ages. Thanks.
