No thats not me, but club member Ray Matthews who last month completed the Del Sahara 100 kilometre Race. Now there's a clue in there somewhere if you can spot it. OK I will make this simple.
Ray, who it has to be said was born at a time when A Hitler was dropping bombs on England, COMPLETED the 65 mile race over 4 days in the Sahara Desert despite a broken toe. The Race was actually 108 kilometres and consisted of 4 legs of 18, 25, 44 and 21k.
I did question Ray's sanity before the race, but there was no need. He is MAD! However, for guts, never say die attitude and sheer ebullience he is a shining light to us all. I even think that he threatened the Doctor with death if he pulled him out of the race when he broke his toe after 5 kilometres. For Ray it was merely a case of Dune but not out!
So well done mate and good luck in that sprint coming up this weekend -The London Marathon!
