PH, I am not worthy. You go girl.

After my first marathon I decided that I'd stick to HMs, 'cause the pain down the side of my left leg in those last couple of miles seemed to be my body's way of saying "STOP NOW YOU MORON".

But but but.... judging by this guy Karnazes, and by Ranulph Feinnes when he did his 7 in 7 days, maybe you really can train your body (and mind) to just keep on going. Or maybe *some* people can.

Hm, wonder how much of it is down to mind and much is down to body?

Whaddya reckon PH?

apparently some crazy Germans do 12 in 12 days for the 12 days of Christmas

Ah yes, this would be the famous Mr Karnazes who WIlliam beat by a good few hours at Badwater.
We were leapfrogging his support crew for a while and there's a photo on the Badwater website just behind him (DK) as he's stood sponging himself.
Strangely he didn't hang aroudn for the post race do and didn't look us in the eye in the hotel lobbey on his way out.
His support crew were friendly enough though.

DK is#99, William is #52. I'm next to him with the green tray with a sponge soaked in ice water, a hat with a pocket with ice, a bandana to go round his nexk with ice rolled up in it. A fresh water bottle and he's drinking his Complan which he took every half hour. We did all this on the move and then drove ahead a mile to repeat!!

you look like you are carrying a bucket of cleaning materials!
16/08/2006 at 14:16
pah - he ought to try a Decaman - 10 Ironman race distances - so swim 24 miles, bike 1120 miles and run 262 miles (10 maras) - all within 14 days.........

I love that pic UH - even when he's sponging himself down the ripped abs are on show!

When I ran my first marathon I met a guy who was running 52 that year then I met him again at Harrow a few years later when he ran his 400th.

The bucket of cleaning materials meant William didn't stop.
DKs crew wheeled the ice box over to his side of the road and left him to it. We walked back to meat William and ran back to the car with him so at that point we'd parked behind DKs crew and left before them.

Rob, I didn't notice his abs. We pretended we had no idea who he was even though the organisors were making quite a fuss over him. Well, he has won it a few times.
He's not a bad runner really, he's run for USA at the world 24 hour champs but wasn't their best runner.

Haha love the photo, Hamster. The expression on his face...
16/08/2006 at 16:37
I love that you pretended not to know who he was!
16/08/2006 at 16:49
He's not a bad runner, and if he manages this it'll be a fine achievment. But he does seem to, ahem, like himself just a little!

That said, I couldn't do it!
16/08/2006 at 16:50
well, he has got a nice body
