I remember writing to you back in 1996 asking about what footwear you would recommend on long distance walking. There was truth in that, but not enough to push her across North America. Those 1,000 miles were just a small proportion of her astonishing feat - she even went back and walked them recently alone and in secret. But he had lied about his age, about having a first-class degree from Oxford and that was just the start of it all.
She more than made up for it and she came clean on it and I respect her for that. Others have needed to make a monster of Campbell by focusing on her problems with drugs and sex.

Ik herken me wel weer in het koppige, het willen uitbreken van Ffyona.
What's more, I would be able to hold it over my friend and rival John, who had failed to appear in camp the night before. That's a question that most people who push themselves in sport ask — or at least should ask.
