Curiosity is what drove my inaugural voyage into ultra endurance running. Me and my friend Max had always dreamed of travelling across the world since we were school children, when we left college we adorned our backpacks bought our tye- dyed t-shirts and joined the ranks of the gap years masses. But when we returned we wanted more.
Well I am off to Brazil in a few days to prepare the trail for this year's UVU Jungle Marathon. Always a hugely exhausting few weeks as the Brazilians in the Amazon region do tend to have the "never-do-today-what-you-can-put-off-until-next-week" syndrome. It's hard to motivate them and often frustrating.
