After a month of being concerned with a pain in my thigh, my fears were confirmed last week when a scan showed a stress fracture in my femur and I have withdrawn from the Atacama Crossing on the advice from my doctor.
Terribly gutting news after training so hard over the past six months and was so excited to get out there and experience the unbelievable. I have found everyone to be so supportive which has certainly helped and it has made me more determined than ever to complete a RTP event. Not this time it seems but watch out Gobi, I have you in my sights :)
Good luck everyone, I hope it goes amazing for you all!
