    He might (sometimes) be an obnoxious fecker, but I reckon this definitely warrants it's own thread.

    For those who missed it, it seems that our minnie did a little run in the desert.

    An hour after the race they removed the infected skin from my feet whilst I lay on the floor of a tent, I had to get tramadol for the next few days until I got back home. I don't know how more people don't die, someone's heart stopped, another was in a coma for a week and that is just the ones I have heard about. I would love to go back and do it again but I don't think I will be allowed.

    It was incredibly fun looking back, I would love to do it again and would recommend anyone ( especially young ) to do it.

    Anyway, here is a funny picture of what they drew out of just one blister on the 3rd day.


    Fantastic achievement.

                We need a whole team to cook that many.

                Though we wanted you as one of the cheerleaders.

                    Flip me, I'm so glad I'm not fit enough to do that.

                    It's like hard drugs - You'd feel like an absolute vegetable, and probably think like one, if you didn't run 20 miles one day
