Mega Marsch

87 816 steps, 63 km, in about 15,5 hours. Wir gehen weiter.

It’s been the most exhausting physical challenge I’ve ever done. A lot of fun. struggle, learning, experience. Mega Marsch Berlin gave me everything I hoped to experiece. Friendship, support, fun, helpfulness, struggles, joy, pain and battle.

After around 45 km, my body started to give up. It took another 15 km for my mind to agree to it, and it’s incredible how much you can overcome with willpower, a helping hand and someone to rely on. Yet it’s fascinating how the body can shut down after the first warning signs.

“Perhaps strength doesn’t reside in having never been broken, but in the courage required to grow strong in the broken places.” (Kristen Jongen)

We should all challenge ourselves every now and then to push and explore our limits, because magic happens when you face them.
