He refocused his addictive personality toward running, entering marathons, then ultramarathons, and self-created endurance missions. In February, 2007, Charlie and teammates Ray Zahab and Kevin Lin became the first people in history to run across the entire Sahara Desert, covering over 4,300 miles in what became a 111 consecutive day effort.

Vanessa Runs is a trail runner, as a journalist she has worked as an Assistant Editor, Online Editor. But it was office work, she lived for the weekends and her dog was bored.

In 2012, she quit her job gave away all her possessions, and hit the trails to run and write books. Her first book, The Summit Seeker, hit Amazon’s Best Sellers and Hot New Releases in the Sports & Outdoors category.

She lives day-to-day, bartering for the things she needs so she can live as a nomadic trail runner.
