"How to fit in preparation for a 273km stage race when you have a busy lifestyle?
Hey Folks. JAX MARIASH here. I am thrilled to take part over the next year to supply tips and tricks to preparing and succeeding through your self-supported stage races with G2G or M2M.
The first topic on the docket is one of the most important in my opinion. It is 9 months from G2G and that is an intimidating look at a 273km race across magical but brutal terrain. As a previous world champion and the “Queen of Stage Racing,” even I get intimidated at this phase. And if that wasn’t enough, we are all choosing to haul everything we need to survive.
If that wasn’t daunting enough to think about for training, then we must add in life, family, children, business and social obligations. The task to manage all of this becomes a dance in itself. To kick off this column, I would like to share five tips and tricks to accomplish the task from a gal that can relate. Pulling off the lead female position with running and owning a coffee business is a hefty feat. Enjoy!Write comment (1 Comment)

G2G takes place in remote terrain where there is very little mobile phone signal and where unprepared people do get lost. We want you to focus on the race and not to worry about other things that are the responsibility of the organisers.Write comment (0 Comments)
