I thought it was a once in a lifetime sort of a thing. The journey, the effort, the emotions too big, too scary, to beautiful to be repeated. I was wrong.

Here’s the journey repeated, with some variation on the route so that it in fact became the highest recognised independent variation on the Great Himalaya Trail.

Repeating something is interesting. I’ve done it before with the UTMB, with my Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu run and more. The challenge doesn’t actually get any less. It’s just different. You’ve learnt things, you are different. But the mountains are different, your body and mind are different. So the challenge is different too.
