There are those among us who push their bodies to the extreme - breaking athletic records and seeking out life altering adventures with the potential to completely ravage them for life. Then there's the rest of us who bribe ourselves with desserts in order to hit up the gym twice a week, complain about sore feet after a long day walking downtown, and prefer the high of a vape to a run.
The 33-year-old adventure athlete Ross Edgley is firmly in the former camp. As of this year, Edgely made his name as the first person to swim around Britain - a total of 1,780 miles. For over a hundred days, Edgely swam 12 hour days and consumed between 10,000 and 15,000 calories each day.
