Dreamchasers Marathon Des Sables Running Camp - Day 3

today was a great day with temps hitting the mid 70's in tucson. we ran in bear canyon on an amazing trail that wound it's way up to a cascading waterfall.

today's quote of the day came from an camper who has raced marathon des sables before. he was talking about how cocky ironman athletes are often humbled by the 6 day staged race through the sahara desert...
"at mds ironman athletes are just a source of free food"
... classic.

in the desert we drink a lot of nuun

Trails look nice man...I'm crazy jealous. Huge swing in temperature here. Monday morning -19, Thursday morning 39. I vaguely remember what singletrack looks like.
