how to tell if someone is high
I have always been fascinated by people who can stretch and do things considered impossible. I was told today by India's how to tell if someone is high Commissioner in Australia, Navdeep Suri, about the legendary Aussie runner Patrick Farmer (@patfarmerrunner). Farmer has trekked from the North Pole to the South, run from the East Coast of the USA to the West and will now do the #SpiritofIndia run; an initiative of the Indian High Commission here.
He will run 70-80 kms everyday from Kanyakumari to... Srinagar. Just pause and imagine that. That is 2 marathons a day every day. I am particularly delighted because it brings the two countries that mean the most to me, India and Australia closer through a greater understanding.
I am sure there are running enthusiasts along the route who will be fascinated and apparently Farmer has agreed to have some of you run alongside him.
The run starts on January 26 which, apart from being Republic Day is also Australia Day.
Do spread the word around and join in this amazing human adventure.
Oh, and by the way, Farmer is a twice elected Member of Parliament and a minister in the Howard cabinet!
