Runner 786 …


My number arrived for the Marathon Des Sable and I am number 786 , runner 786 if you will , Im pleased to have a number , for years I have just been Mark Lyons , now I am runner 786 in “the toughest foot race in the world” , for some reason this feels good , maybe it is the realization that its for real , that I really am going to go head to head with the Sahara in April.

786 is also a spiritual number and means BISMILLAAHIR RAHMAANIR RAHEEM which is the very first verse of the Qur’an , meaning “In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate”

maybe I’m just lucky ……. but if people in Morocco start getting down in front of me and praying then Im swapping it .
