I am sure most of you remember the highlight I did for Ng Seow Kong earlier this month on his personal mission to run Badwater Ultramarathon and raise money for charity. Seow Kong is inspirational in his (more than one) way. Then I have two friends that is Mohan Marathon and Winnie Wong doing the same in the 250km footrace across the Australia Big Red Run at Simpsons Desert.

Both the races were completed in scorching hot heat over days. Testing and pushing the limits of human mental strength and physical endurance. These inspirational people are doing all these for their personal reasons.
Today, I want to highlight another Malaysian that will attempt something that will leave us all in awe - and for a charity too.
PT Lam is participating in Racing the Planet Iceland 2013, a running challenge that will see her running an amazing and gruelling 250-kilometer / 155-mile course that starts in the highlands between Iceland's largest glacier Vatnajokull and Langjokull. Competitors will encounter much of the iconic Icelandic scenery with a wide range of colourful landscapes along the way.
This includes waterfalls, glaciers, lava fields, lava cliffs, black sand beaches, hot springs and geothermal areas with bubbling mud. The terrain will include rocky lava fields, jeep tracks, single track trails, dust roads, grass fields, soft sand, wet sand, rolling hills, hard lava cliffs as well as some river crossings.
