Daniel so it's been about a year since we last talked and we're going to get into Tech startups and what the World 2.0 looks like after covid-19, but I have to hear about the marathon you've recently ran an article. How is that I want to know what that experience was like. Sure.
Thanks again for having me on delighted to talk. I recently finished dryer running. Yeah, a bunch of miles a marathon in Antarctica in all honesty. Most of the credit IND. Well fame or infamy goes should go to my friend Kyle folk who who I was pacing. Kyle was running seven marathons in seven continents and trying to set the record for doing it in 77 hours. He ended up. Completing the feet in about I think 8485 hours till shattering the record by quite some bit and I paste him for a few of those Marathon certainly not all of them. But the first one that we ran was in Antarctica, very interesting place quite desolate. I think the best way to Envision it is if you have ever been in a desert you can kind of imagine that just with with the you know, with the conditions you'd expect much colder snow wind. We think fully had pretty nice visibility. Actually. There was a marathon that was around about 48 hours prior to us and we were kind of looking in finishing times there and fastest finishing time this for hours and change and you know for a marathon usually it's just slightly under half of that, you know, two hours 20 minutes for a speedy finish. So for the, you know top finishers finishing it for hours that means conditions are really bad. So we were kind of getting worried ourselves. Figured we power through regardless, but we had a little bit of wind but it was pretty nice regardless packed snow, you know, you kind of think of the surface being like a kind of a beach style in terms of the impact you get from it. And so that means that it's actually a little bit easier on your knees, but you have to apply a little bit more Force because you're getting less forced back from the ground you're sinking a little bit in each step. So it takes out, you know, sir. Rising amount of you but it's just a thrilling place to be and you know running I find has this interesting effect where it really encodes things into memory, you know, I find if I'm on vacation and I go run I really remember the area that I ran in and as a result I even though we ran kind of laps around the Airfield that we landed in. I remember it intently intense like
