Best Ultra Run Experience:

The 11°Marathon Des Sables in 1996 and the 1° Desert Marathon Libya in 1998. It was the first time I was taking part to these marathons and found them fascinating.


Weird Experience:

Marathon Des Sables. We had to be autosufficient.


Challenge:

Cromagnon 2001. The marathon was near my home and all my friends were there to see me. I found it very gratifying.


Why:

I love long distances and beautiful landscapes. For example, I wouldn't be excited to run in the New York Marathon.


Why badwater:

I would like to see this desert and try a new experience.
