As a boy I disliked running. Loathed it in fact. I couldn't think of a worse way of spending a PE lesson and took any opportunity to avoid it.
In 2011 I ran completed the Marathon des Sables.
So, what changed? What sequence of events led me to face scorpions, sandstorms and searing heat while running 150 miles through the Moroccan desert?
Part memoir, part training record and 100% indulgence, this is the story of how it all changed.
