    Agreed. I hate to think how many bits really hurt after such a super human effort. Think how many steps she took, how many times each hip/ankle had to flex. And then there is the sleep deprivation. Sabrina is a real star.

    Indeed. Those of us who become lethargic or irritable if we don't get our 7 hours of sleep at night simply don't understand how it is possible to keep going for nearly seven days without any proper sleep. And apparently it was a knee injury rather than the sleep deprivation that caused her to slow down on Saturday.
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    Has anybody ever declined joining the BG club for similar reasons?

    As in:
    I got round in under 24hrs but <insert transgression here>
    There's been a small number, certainly less than ten, who've done part of the Round solo so have submitted a form but stated that it's for the records and they don't expect to become members.

    Such an admission is almost more admirable than the completion of such a herculean task. Restores ones faith in decent humanity. Hats off to you Sabrina, and I really look forward to seeing you have another crack at it.
