15/08/2008: Mount Korab 2754 meters a.s.l.
7th September 2008 will be the day that I will climb the Mount Korab, which is 2754 meters high and situated on the border of Macedonia and Albania. My Macedonian friend asked me “did you train? ” My answer was where I have to train, as my country is _________?
I am lucky I can bike every day to my work, I do move a lot, so I am ok, but I hope I will make it to the top….I bought the right shoes now, which walks wonderful, but still I am scared, that I will be a sissy and will not make it. The right spirit I have, so mentally it will be no problem….
