The C2S blog draws on the arts, the social and biological sciences to explore the many meanings of health and "dis-ease." Designed to be a locus where patients, their families and professionals can meet on a level playing field, it is the natural off-shoot of the Cell 2 Soul Online Journal. We encourage the submission of ideas, essays, poems, stories, humor, and timely reviews relating to the humanities and health care.
February 20, 2007. IN THE WESTERN DESERT, Egypt --
Three ultra-endurance athletes have just done something most would
consider insane: They ran the equivalent of two marathons a day for 111
days to become the first modern runners to cross the Sahara Desert's
grueling 4,000 miles. See Story
Three men undertake an unprecedented quest: They will run 4,000 miles (6,437 kilometers) coast-to-coast across the Sahara Desert, from Senegal to Egypt, in 100 days. Running up to 50 miles (80 kilometers) a day, these international athletes put their bodies and spirits to the test in an amazing feat of human will and endurance.
