K-Way Athlete AJ Calitz is currently in Europe running some pretty insane trail events. Three weeks ago, he took a tumble in Spain and sliced his knee open. The race doctor prevented him from continuing, and he got staples to seal the wound. Sounds like the perfect excuse to relax a bit and enjoy the sights... But not for AJ!
He and his wife removed the staples with nail clippers and a Leatherman, and this weekend he hopes (depends on the weather) to run the 100km Verdon Canyon Challenge. Over the expected 12 or 13 hours, AJ will do 6,500m of positive ascent.
