Team Born to Run: Sahara

Unseen video of our Racing The Planet Sahara adventure from October/November last year.

Keepin’ it real with desert Pilates and lawn chairs.

See Greg sweat bucketloads! See Jess do Greg-pressing crossfit training! Witness my bag break 20 minutes into the week of running and hear me drop desert eff-bombs!!!

Hilarious! We all forget what we say in these interviews because we get sunbaked and run long in between each interview.

Own quote: “If things are atrocious, then we’ll go …. slow … for a long time. And we will … hate it … because we’d rather be … running. But, we’re gonna get there…. as a team, because it’s what we do.”

When in doubt, do The Robot.

Sahara was a seriously tough run, with the thick soft sand across over 60% of the course, there were very few stretches of packed sand where everybody could get up to speed. Also, as evident in this clip, the heat and frustration was a bit of a factor…

And if you think you’re faster, tougher, or sweatier, check out Big Red Run. There’s still 9 weeks to get ready for it and, hey, it’s only a multiday…. right?
