PABLO ON THE LEFT. JOSE ON RIGHT

AS I MENTIONED 6 WEEKS AGO I WAS TERRIFIED CROSSING THE BORDER DUE TO ALL THE BAD PUBLICITY WHICH MEXICO RECEIVES. WHATEVER ABOUT OTHER PARTS OF MEXICO AND ANY DRUG OR CRIME PROBLEMS THAT MAY EXIST BAJA IS AS SAFE AND SAFER THAN JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE I HAVE BEEN TO IN MY ALMOST 70 COUNTRIES TRAVELLING IN MY LIFE.

BAJA DOES NOT HAVE THE CRIME, DRUGS, GANG PROBLEMS OF OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD. THE PENINSULA ALSO IS LUCKY IN SO FAR AS THERE ARE NO TROPICAL DISEASES, TORNADOS, HURRICANES ETC.

IT IS A SAFE PLACE TO PARTY, HOLIDAY AND LIVE. I HAVE MET MANY FOREIGNERS DURING MY STAY AND HAVE NOT HEARD OF ANY INCIDENTS.

THANK YOU BAJA FOR TAKING ME AND MY WORLD RUN TO YOUR HEART. THE ATTITUDE WAS ALMOST; ” HOW CAN WE HELP YOU MAKE YOUR DREAM HAPPEN TONY? ”

About Tony

I have always considered myself to be an average runner. In school, I was even bullied for I was a sports wimp. Through hard work, dedication, perseverance, self-belief and a strong mind I succeeded in not only running around the world but breaking four ultra running world records during my competitive career. Having previously cycled around the world I didn't start running until I was almost 30. Then I had a dream of running around the world. For many reasons, I waited for over 20 years. One reason was to establish my pedigree as an endurance athlete. I started and finished my world run as the current World Record-Holder for 48 Hours Indoor Track 426 kilometres (265 miles), a record I have held since 2007. I also broke and still hold the World Record for 48 hours on a Treadmill 405 kilometres (251 miles) in 2008. When I retired from competition, more pleasing than any of my world, European or Irish records I had the respect of my fellow athletes from all over the world - in my opinion, sports greatest reward - an achievement I am most proud of. Then I finally put myself out to pasture, to live my ultimate dream to run around the world! This blog was written on the road while I struggled to find places to sleep and to recover from running an average of 43.3 kilometres or 27 miles per day for 1,165 road days. There were many nights I typed this blog on a smart phone, so fatigued my eyes closed. Many journalists and endurance athletes have referred to my world run as the most difficult endurance challenge ever attempted. During my expedition I rarely had any support vehicles, running mostly with a backpack. In the more desolate areas I pushed my gear, food and water in a cart which I called Nirvana, then I sent her on ahead to run with my backpack once again over altitudes of almost 5,000 metres in the Andes. I stayed in remote villages where many people had never seen a white person before. I literally met the most wonderful people of this world in their own backyard and share many of those amazing experiences in this blog. My run around the world took 4 years. There were no short cuts, I ran every single metre on the road while seeking out the most comprehensive route across 41 countries, 5 continents, I used 50 pair of running shoes and my final footstep of the run was exactly 50,000 kilometres, (almost 31,000 miles) I eventually finished this tongue in cheek named world jog where I started, at the finish line of my city marathon. I started my global run with the Dublin Marathon on October 25th 2010 and finished with the Dublin Marathon on October 27th 2014 at 3 05pm! Thank you for your support, I hope you can share my unique way of seeing the world, the ultimate endurance challenge! Read more...
