Running the Sahara

If you have Netflix or the equivalent, watch this documentary...these guys ran the equivalent of 170 marathons in 110 days, without a single day of rest ....across the the upper African continent and straight through the Sahara Desert.

 

The reason I stuck it in the Newbie Cafe is that one of the runners, Ray Zahab, was a relative newcomer to running; and it had only been a couple of years before that he was a pack-a-day smoker and hard partyer, by his own admission.

 

Pretty inspirational stuff!   Next time I think I am in "pain" during my C25K program, remembering these maniacs will help me push through what little discomfort I think I might be feeling.

 

Check it out and enjoy!
