South African Ultra Trail Runner Ryan Sanders in an CNN interview.

Circumnavigate Lesotho on foot – in 16 days

For runners, blisters and cracked feet are par for the course; they’re practically a source of pride for Sandes and his running partner Ryno Griesel, who together created and subsequently completed Navigate Lesotho on April 27. They covered 1,100 kilometers (684 miles) with over 33,000 meters of elevation gain in 16 days, 16 hours and 56 minutes — all under extreme weather conditions.

“If there was one thing I would change about my career, I would have put on more sunscreen.” Ryan Sanders
