Jogging the Sahara

Ever thought about jogging through the Sahara desert? Probably not. Apparently, these guys, Charlie Engle, Kevin Lin, and Ray Zahab, not only thought about it, they decided it was a good idea. To put this in perspective, this amounted to running over 4,300 miles for 111 consecutive days (they got about five hours of sleep per night). That works out to about 39 miles a day, every day. Now, consider they did it in temperatures approaching 120 degree Fahrenheit. Definitely, this is not a good idea! Yet, the three undertook this amazing journey and, although I'm sure they were tempted to quit many times, they persevered and completed their journey alive.
