‘Three lessons I learned running the Everest Marathon’ – Mel Fey

ITC Tourism Education Team Leader Mel Fey recently ran the Everest Marathon in Nepal; a 42.2km high-altitude run from Base Camp to Namche Bazaar. Below, she shares three life lessons she learned during this incredible, challenging, life-changing experience.

1. You’re always capable of more than you think you are

You read stories all the time of amazing people who, sometimes against all odds, achieve amazing goals. And you might think, “Oh, but I couldn’t do that…”

I’m here to tell you that you can. Don’t sell yourself short. You can achieve anything you want to. You cannot possibly just sit and wait for the impossible to happen without a little hard work.  I always say ‘you cannot make diamonds without a little pressure’.  You need to prepare, work hard or train and participate.

You may not win the race like me but you certainly win in achieving the goals of your dreams.

She’s called ‘Manic Mel’ for a reason – ITC’s bright, energetic Tourism Education Team Leader earned her nickname for her adventurous physical pursuits and bubbly personality. And the latest challenge in her path is a little more manic than most: the Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon.

Yes, you read right – Mel Fey (also known as ‘The Energizer Bunny’) is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, a 42.2km run on Mount Everest. The super-fit tutor recently landed in Nepal to begin the acclimatisation process. The marathon is scheduled for May 29, but there’s a lot of fun to be had before then, including a trek to Base Camp (where the marathon begins).

The run is downhill, but with limited oxygen and potentially icy tracks, it’s going to be a huge physical and mental challenge – but it’s one that Mel can’t wait to begin. She’s been preparing for this marathon for three years, and was due to run it at this time last year – only it was cancelled due to Nepal’s devastating earthquakes.
