"Shortly after 23:45 GMT today, world celebrated explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes and his long-time expedition companion, Dr. Mike Stroud, made endurance history at the ING New York City Marathon finish line after successfully completing the Land Rover 7x7x7 Challenge, an epic around-the-world trip consisting of seven marathons on seven continents in seven days."

I heard on the radio yesterday that the other guy carried a portable defribulator (sp?) in case Fiennes keeled over after his by-pass surgery in June. Another case of "Mad dogs and Englishmen..." I guess!
