One man’s epic journey, from a rather comfortable settee, to the Great Sahara Desert and beyond. This book is written by me - an ordinary bloke who fancied having a bash. It sort of chronicles my feeble foray into the world of “Ultra-distance Running.” I’m not an athlete or even a very good runner, but I do possess a thirst for adventure, a willingness to have a go, and a love of travel. My fears, mistakes, questions and “cock ups” are all here.  It’s not a book full of training tips, nutritional advice, kit lists etc. It is however a comprehensive list of the races I have done, the things I’ve got away with and the things I haven’t. Unfortunately I write much like I run, with an amateurish enthusiasm, so please forgive me. Dave Berridge
