And you thought the “Big Day” was hard…
Max King just raced the 2012 Zegama-Aizkorri Marathon in Northern Spain on a cold and wet course that went up and down the Basque mountains, climbing and descending 17,700 ft of elevation. Max placed 16th with a time of 4 hours 24 minutes; to put that in perspective, Max’s marathon PR is 2:14 (which he set at the beginning of this year). In Max’s words, “[that was] the hardest 4:20 marathon I have ever done. I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck…” This is coming from a guy that runs all over Steens Mountains like a gazelle. Just goes to show, running is never easy. It will always take hard work and dedication. Way show us how it’s done Max!
