    46 Hours 35 Minutes

    My record is 46 hours 35 minutes. Not so special really, but I was doing a 24 hour mountain bike race and on a massive adrenaline high for all of that. I slept pretty well afterwards... To all those mountain bikers out there... we're tough cookies. And to all non-mtbers. Give it...
