Running the Sahara

Wendy and I just watched Running the Sahara, a documentary that follows the expedition of three men who log 4300 miles running across the countries of Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Libya, and Egypt.

Watching this movie made me feel like a wuss.  At one point, when one of the team wants to quit, the outspoken Charlie Engle quips that if he wants to quit, he should just go and run a marathon where there are water stations at every mile.  Maybe 26.2 miles isn’t such a big deal, after all.

Between this and Spirit of the Marathon, I should be pumped to go for a run…any day now…
