My friend from Brazil came in to participate in the Miami marathon in late January. While he was here he told me of his next adventure running across the desert in Tunisia in March. The race was cancelled due to unrest in Tunisia so I suggested to him to go with me to the Himalayas to run a 100 mile/5 day endurance race instead. He agreed and we met in India which turned out to be unbelievably grueling.
