May present myself...
I'm Nadia Benaerens, 45 years...going on 46 ;(
Single, no kids and always looking for a challenge, push the limits and see where persistence and strength takes me!
I'm a flight attendant/stewardess and I have also my own business, I own a coffeeshop with delicious home-made cakes, which I bake myself, but never eat them....quite exceptional ;-))
I have been running ultra marathons for quite some years always with Spartathlon in the back of my mind!
Last year I met the requirements in the GUCR 2015 and finally I can register.
So, I participated and finished in
marathon des sables 2011
Xreid Hardangervidda 2014,
several 100km races,
Limburg zwaarste 2013,
several other long distance races, but most of them longer ago.
I would still like to run several other races, a small bucket list, but the first one I really want/would like to do it THE Spartathlon.
Several of my fellow running friends have participated and finished and I would like to attempt to follow them.
Last year I participated and to my own big disappointment, i only got to 195km or CP60.
Although my failure was difficult to process, I was slightly positive when they told me I got the required distance again for the lottery!!!
At least, one good thing I did that day!!!
So, if given the opportunity, I would like to take revenge on myself this year!
Only a true sportsman-woman, can understand that last year can not be the end!!!!
So, looking forward to hear from you, I remain with great admiration for all of those who ever finished!!!
Whatever happens with my registration, good luck for everyone!
