Last year, after having completed the 4 deserts challenge (Gobi, Sahara, Antarctica and Atacama) in 9 months and followed that with the brutal UTMB, I had thought that 2012 was going to be a year of rest. It was not to be. . . . Thanks to Caner and his team I opened the season with the beautiful, İznik Ultra. And now it is time for Racing the Planet’s Jordan Race (May 13 – 20). Jordan Race, like other desert ultras is a multistage self-supporting 250 km foot race (or for me an event, as I still find the term race too nerve wrecking). I often get asked the big WHY! Why do I do these events? I am finally starting to formulate a reasonable answer and it is certainly not “to stay fit and healthy.” I do these events for a Multiple Scolerosis (MS) charity – shift.ms. MS impacts 150 of 100,000 people without discrimination and even though it has been defined for almost 140 years it is still without cure. Shift.ms is almost entirely managed by volunteers. It is a social network run by its users where young MSers meet and share experiences and support each other. We depend on donations to keep our operations active. Therefore, your help no matter how large or small is much appreciated. Please click here to donate JustGiving. Thanks, Devrim
