In January 2017 I visited Loughborough University in the UK. My run is the subject of a scientific research project involving the National Center for Sport and Exercise Medicine at Loughborough University and the University of Massachusetts in the United States. Dr Laura-Anne Furlong, a sports researcher at Loughborough University (pictured), will be leading a project studying my biomechanics over the 5400km distance. I am very excited to be part of this project. At the beginning of April I will spend time in the lab for biomechanical testing and speak to nutritional experts.
