Matthieu is almost half way his 8 ISLANDS Challenge running the second half of his 4th marathon as we speak.
With the three most difficult islands (though bike courses) and a lack of sleep on the boat (rough sea) behind us Matthieu's state of mind is still super positive.
Tonight Matthieu is flying to Gran Canaria and will be sleeping in a normal bed giving him the opportunity to recover a bit and be ready for the second half of the challenge!
The 8ISLANDS crew is giving every possible support and Carole & Erwin (parents / logistics and general care), Luc (coach and nutrition), Zeno (courses and logistics) and Klaas and Niels (camera crew - Glowball films) are confident that Matthieu will finish this crazy challenge.
You can do this Gold luck
Matthieu you are not a man and calling you iron man is a little while you are a machine that swims like a dolphin, whizzes like a motorcycle and runs like a gazelle, with the mental strength of an elephant. compliments
