In our next article we feature James’s experiences in the Marathon des Sables in 2010 and his tips for those taking part in April 2015 or planning to take part in the race in future years. His 2015 comeback plans include the Richtersveld Wildrun and the Badwater 135.
“It will be about me drawing a line after the accident as well and moving on. It will be nice to go back to Death Valley and put some demons to rest. I need to square the circle and move on. I don’t want my life to be defined by winning two gold medals. I don’t want my life to be defined by being the guy who got hit on the head by a truck! I refuse, I will choose my path and I will not be pigeon holed. I will create my path.” – James Cracknell
