Company in the desert :-)
Not long after I had woken up (in a freezing cold tent ;-), packed my things, enjoyed the sunrise in the desert and started todays run - I was met by my two running friends in Jordan:
Farah and Ammar !
Allready I have had their good company while running in Amman city, and now they had driven ca. 200km to run w. me again. 30km each; wich for Farah was her longes training run ever :-)
WELL DONE (she looked as she could easily have run 10k more !!). And THANKS for great company to both of you who 'made my day in the desert' :-)
Todays running advice:
The last day before Christmas I will forward one of the advices from my cherished co-runner the first 7000km of the run, Sarah Barnett:
Whatever happens, Allways have Faith in your Run !!
(and I think that advice goes in many 'walks of life' :-)
