Although Marie likes to live in the moment, she’s hoping to continue to participate in running and endurance events for the next 20 years. She will be attempting the Sur les Traces des Ducs de Savoie Race (TDS) in August 2020, which is a 145 km run from Cormayeaur, Italy to Chamonix, France. The event has a total of 9100 meters of elevation gain combined with very technical mountain trails.
But that’s not all Marie is hoping to accomplish. She’s diving into a new career path and enjoying a different kind of journey in that.
As for advice she’d like to pass down to runners or endurance athletes who are just starting out, she says, “Just enjoy every moment of it. Take the first step, one foot in front of the other until you’re done. There is no magic formula in this. If you love what you’re doing, your body will follow.”
