TO THE MOUNTAINS

It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.

And I realised there is just so much more out there. So many goals to reach. So many limits to pass. So many lines to cross.

My name is Greg Lamarche, 33 year old climber/runner from Belgium. My first big mountain was Kilimanjaro. My most favorite mountain is Ama Dablam. I want to climb Alpamayo, Khan Tengri and the Matterhorn in the near future. My dream is to climb Daulaghiri and Makalu some day. I will never climb Everest. I can’t go on a mountain without my Mountain Hardwear microstretch and Powerbar C2Max. I ran my first marathon in 2009. Since then I have never stopped running. I realized I can aspire everything. I realized I can have it all. Just not all at once.

 Train hard.

  1. Thanks for this article. I’d also like to express that it can often be hard if you are in school and simply starting out to initiate a long credit standing. There are many students who are just trying to endure and have an extended or favourable credit history are often a difficult matter to have. ffkfeceebecc
