Re-posted from June 2016
My apologies for the lack of updates immediately before the run on 29 May, during the run over the 2/3 days, and afterwards.
Anyway... much to say, but to the point. I started at 07.00 on Sunday 29 May along with the Everest Marathon runners as planned, after 13 days hiking and training from near Jiri, up to Base Camp.
The first was a chance phrase from a friend in Nepal in 2013. We had just finished the Everest Marathon that year, my second time. We had hiked back down to Lukla, one of the most dangerous airports in the world
So why do the Everest Mailrun? Several reasons. The main one happened on April 25 last year, when a devastating earthquake hit Nepal. I saw the news breaking of the disaster and recognised places I’d visited just two years before.
