Sorry about the lack of posting; been busy with a lot of small relatively non-important things that have all conspired to suck my time up.

Anyway, just thought I'd share this news story I noticed yesterday (my dad will definitely appreciate it.)

"IN THE WESTERN DESERT, Egypt - Three ultra-endurance athletes have just done something most would consider insane: They ran the equivalent of two marathons a day for 111 days to become the first modern runners to cross the Sahara Desert's grueling 4,000 miles."

Wow. I don't think impressive even starts to cover that. According to the article, they ran between 44-50 miles a day. For 111 days straight.

Like I said, BAMF.
