Come April 8th ‘Blah Blah Blah’ aka Jon E Cassell will be running 150 miles in 6 days across the Sahara Desert, which is effectively 6 Marathons in 6 days in 50°c heat. The race is called the ‘Marathon Des Sables‘ and is widely regarded as the toughest foot race on earth (see pictures below). Like most of his family and friends you are probably thinking why? Well, long story short, the aim is to inspire those who struggle with depression, anxiety, low self esteem or any other mental condition that erodes their personal sense of self worth and value.
