May present myself...
I'm Nadia Benaerens, 47 years...going on 48 ;(
Always looking for a challenge, pushing my 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 during Belgian Championship 100km in Aalter Belgium in 09u56 for a second try in your race.
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.
2 years ago I participated and to my own big disappointment, i only got to 195km or CP60.
Although my failure was difficult to process, I keep believing I can do this and I want to prove it!
So, if given the opportunity, I would like to take revenge on myself this year!
Only a true sportsman-woman, can understand that 2 years ago, 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!
