If you have not seen the movie it is about three guys Ray Zahab, Kevin Lin, and Charlie Engle. Together they team up with a crew to run over 4300 miles across Africa and the Sahara desert. Along the way they encounter blisters and pain as well as setbacks and doubt. There are many times I have doubt with my running schedule, I don't need to run half way across Africa to experience that. It helps to know they go through the same feelings I do as a runner.
After watching this movie I am motivated to run my own expedition someday. Nothing as intense as the Sahara, but I have always wanted to hike or run the river to river trail in Illinois. Or maybe hike/run the entire Ice Age trail in Wisconsin. Dare to dream. What did you once think impossible that you can make possible? This year I am determined to complete my first 50 mile event!
