Mike Hare, affectionately known as The Incredible Shrinking Man, is living testament to what a human being . With steely determination, exercise and healthy eating, Mike lost 15 stone, and his self-belief and confidence grew

Mike Hare, affectionately known as The Incredible Shrinking Man, is living testament to what a human being can do when they harness the power of the mind/body connection. Aged 50 and a successful businessman, Mike weighed 28 stone, was a stranger to exercise and a heart attack waiting to happen. With steely determination, exercise and healthy eating, Mike lost 15 stone, and his self-belief and confidence grew. As a challenge, just 6 months after taking up jogging, he completed his first half marathon- the Great North Run. Just five months after having major surgery to remove huge flaps of loose skin, and now aged 54, he completed The Flora London Marathon.

The trio will variously run the London Marathon, climb Mount Snowdon or complete the MoonWalk. Over the next few months, the trio will variously run the London Marathon, climb Mount Snowdon or complete the MoonWalk. They’re astonishing feats for women who were once so obese they used to get out of breath climbing hills or even just vacuuming the house. I’m going to cry my eyes out when I cross that line.

What I like most about running extreme marathons is the fact that you come into close contact with nature - the races take place in beautiful settings such as mountains, deserts, glaciers. As a professional athlete I hadn't been able to enjoy these surroundings because I was so focused on winning medals. I found out about the Marathon des Sables by chance. I regained my strength and mental lucidity. I decided to get out of the shrine and start walking again, but where to? I followed the advice the Tuareg had given us all before we started the race: "If you're lost, head for the clouds that you can see on the horizon at dawn, that's where you will find life.
