It was the greatest year of my lIfe.
I ran with bulls, danced at festivals, strode across the Great Wall of China and crawled beneath the Great Pyramids. I made my way to the remotest islands, the hottest deserts and the coldest of climates. I was robbed, suffered injuries, got sick and depressed. I covered around 320 000 kilometres by plane, train, boat, bus and car and ran just over 2300 race kilometres. It proved to me that you can do whatever you want to do – just find the starting line, believe in yourself, and RUN LIKE CRAZY!
