“Adventure is not outside man; it is within”.
Having had time to reflect on an incredible adventure both physically and mentally, I now have to put this race behind me to focus on the next challenge. Deciding what race and how to approach it for such a novice isnt easy. My new Jungle friends are talking of such craziness as :
Canadian Death Race: http://www.canadiandeathrace.com/
The Polar Race: http://polarrace.com/2011
The Yukon Arctic Trail: http://www.arcticultra.de/en.php
For starters Im thinking : http://www.4deserts.com/
All incredible endurance races. The Marathon Des Sables veterans I met in the Amazon were hardened ultra atheletes. The Jungle Marathon in their eyes was a much more brutal and raw experience, everything so far doesnt seem to compare. These races cost money and require significant sponsorship so any advice would be greatly welcomed. I am up for the challenge so any suggestions are welcome !
