Some endurance challenges are so ridiculously, mind-boggling massive that it’s sometimes hard to comprehend what the average athlete can take from them. I’m thinking in particular of Ross Edgley here, who we joined this month as he completed his 1,792-mile swim around Great Britain. Breaking it down, none of us will probably ever take on a sporting challenge that requires 157 days at sea, 12-hour swims, dodging jellyfish or a disintegrating tongue (ouch). It’s all relative though and if there’s one thing I learnt from Ross, it’s how powerful determination can be when bolstered by passion, humour and an infectious, boundless enthusiasm that sweeps everyone along with you. Read more on p16 and hopefully he’ll inspire you for your next challenge, too!
