Adventurer, Guide, Race Director and Founder of Impossible2Possible, Ray Zahab is at the next level of ultra endurance. His adventures include traverses across the Sahara desert (7,500 kms in 111 days), Arctic, Siberia, South Pole, Atacama Desert, Gobi Desert and much, much more (www.rayzahab.com).
We got the chance to sit down with Ray via Skype and talk about the uncertainty that the pandemic has created, the impact that the lock down has had on his adventure plans, the races he organises and training, as well as discuss the resilience we have as human beings, brighter outcomes we hope to see after the lock down and of course endurance nutrition.
Huge thanks to Ray for sharing his story!
