WR: What made you decide to attempt the World Marathon Challenge?

SA: It’s a combination of different things. I’ve done a marathon on all seven continents four times and the organizer of the North Pole marathon started organizing the World Marathon Challenge last year. I’ve known him and friends who did it last year, so I went and watched one of the races and it was so inspiring. So I thought that would be the ultimate – I think everybody can get through one marathon somehow, but what about seven of them? I decided I did want to take on that challenge, the mental challenge as much as the physical challenge. The other thing was that I joined the board of Hamlin Fistula and was looking for a way to support them and I thought this would be a great opportunity to make a fundraiser out of it. We have partners that do fundraising in the US, Germany, Australia. The World Marathon Challenge ends in Australia so it was a great match.
