About 3hrs after the race we made a split decision to take a bus ride to Dahab instead of going to Aswan. Probably the best decision we ever made but probably not so much for Tristan's legs. Endured a crazy bus ride which we got told was 14hrs but was actually 19hrs, ha. But worth [...]
One of the craziest marathons to date. In 30 degree heat the T-man completed this hard fought battle in tough conditions as it was actually 40kms according to Tristan's garmin watch. So he had to run back out for 1km after going through the finish line then 1km back to complete this marathon in true [...]
The day before the big race we hired bikes and rode to the Valley Of The Kings and checked out the ancient tombs. Met some very cool people from the hostel to share the experience with -Barry, Joy and Alan.
Arriving in Cairo from Munich and getting our own driver for the day to take us around the 3 famous sites. Even checking out the magnificent famous pyramids on a camel. Wow what an amazing experience.
Celebrating the Dazzler's birthday and cruising the streets in -3 degree temperatures.

This tour is about seeing the world, as much as it is about running and taking on a massive challenge. In doing this, Daz and I are determined to do some stuff we really love…like partying in different clubs and festivals all over the globe. So with this in mind, we hit the coolest club [...]

Thanks to Rebeca for hosting us, you were fantastic in every way. All her friends, Omar, Fiorentina, Juan and Tatiana muchos gracias para todo, you helped us tremendously, we won't [...]
There was nothing pretty about that one. Gone was the feeling of complete control I had last week. I started out apprehensively and finished with a good time, but a twisted face, crossing the line in 3:37.01 by my watch. My left calf was shot after 5 kms and I struggled to try to stretch [...]
