Steve and Andrew zoom off to a camper van on the East Cape to catch up with homeless man Jim Kerse. Jim was the first kiwi to run the Western States way back in 1979, before the days of sports gels and Gurney Goo. After getting into the Coast to Coast and Ironman for a few years, he went back to USA a quarter of a century later and ran Western States again as well as numerous other 100 miler events. Weird topics include nearly losing a leg to a spider bite but still trying to run 100 miles the week after and falling in the water 18 times during the kayaking section of the Coast to Coast.
We also find out about the meaning of the word 'gooch' and discuss Andrew's body shape.
