Starting January 2009, Fitness Guru will be following the progress of Adelante4, a member of our web team, as he attempts to fulfill his dream of running the Marathon des Sables in 2010.
He will post short, personal diaries about his preperation for the "toughest foot race in the world", showing you his training, diet and state of mind. You'll be able to track his progress as he goes through hell and (hopefully) comes out the other side!
In the mean time, check out the following links about the MdS, so you can get a taste of what a daunting challenge this guy is facing.
