Ray Zahab Now Trainging for Gobi Run…

Back from Libya and Training for Gobi !

Lisa and I are prepping for Gobi as we have with all of my other races- lot’s of miles!

Since Libya I have been training pretty much non-stop. I was fortunate to have a fast recovery-  I was running within days of finishing. I was really happy with this as I ran almost 200 kms in super duper tough terrain and barely had any swelling and no blisters. Some of the credit has to go to the Goji Juice for sure.

The plan for Gobi so far has been to train as I did for Sahara Race. It was awesome to get those base miles in Libya.

Training for Gobi will/has included speed work, hill repeats and the ever present ‘tire dragging’! Running with Kevin and Charlie means running really fast- and Gobi is a stage race so it is going to be super tough and super fast!

Where Libya involved more or less non-stop running for 32 or so hours, Gobi will be over a course of several days with the long stage (minimum 80 kms) peeking out on day 4 or 5.

I am always asked – which is tougher- stage racing or non-stop?  I think for me it is stage racing. So fast and not enough time to recover between stages. RacingThePlanet races are incredible experiences-legendary for their course design and ability to test your limits- I am sure Gobi this year will carry on that tradition! Stay tuned – more to come!

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
