What are the chances? Well, obviously high as it turns out. The photo is of a happy looking Kader Boujnane, who's just finished the third day of his four day, 400 kms run from central France to Paris. He and his team (note to self, must get a team) just turned up to eat. So, he's done half the distance I've done in a mere four days. And he's still full of energy.
But you know I was moaning about my ankle being a bit swollen and painful - well he's got the same problem but his swelling is massive and he's hobbling yet still going to run the last stretch into Paris tomorrow.
So, I'll shut up complaining and get back to walking. I'm seriously impressed by the guy.
