today I received an e-mail from Nick Warren that my application for the 2009 x-alps is now approved.
"Your application for participation in the 2009 Red Bull X-Alps has been successful.
We look forward to seeing you in Salzburg, Austria in July 2009 for the world’s toughest hiking and paragliding adventure race."
I am very excited and as everyone can see, I am in full training for it anyways. Now (besides the training) we are looking for all the logistics and sponsors.
We are also researching the right nutrition plan, so if anyone has some good ideas or can give us pointers, please do so.
Penny is very excited as well as she will be the supporter for the 2009 X-alps.
Now this letter will help Peter Shatalow (film producer) to get a TV network in place to create a documentary about our training, pre-race and the race.
Please feel free to send us any tips about training, nutrition, information about route and anything else you can think of.
