Swissotel Vertical Marathon 2013


First time ever doing a stairs race. My running mentor told me I should give it a shot and see how I fair. Didnt have confidence with it as climbing – on bike and run has never been my forte. I tried it anyway. So getting away with an 8th position in my new age group of 40 – 49 yo with no climbing training – except for mountain biking – I think was a real fluke.

Will I do it again? I am not sure. I am going easy with races next year. Planning Ironman Langkawi and XTERRA Putrajaya, I think if this vertical marathon is after the September ironman, I may just put in some stairs training and go for a better timing.

Will see how…
