With the advent of the New Year, many of us have probably committed ourselves to New Year’s resolutions. Some of these might be resolutions that focus on improving certain areas in our lives while others could help us have more fun and enjoy life more fully.
A little over a year ago Dr. Jeremy Palmer, Assistant Professor in the Department of Arabic and Translation Studies, decided to start 2015 with a bang. He registered to compete in the Urban-Ultra Extreme3 2015 race, a 140km totally self-supported, three-stage race which takes runners through a rocky mountain terrain and over the spectacular sand dunes of the UAE. The three-day race will take place from January 8-10, 2015.
