Internal Dialogue | Journal | Ben Saunders | North Pole Speed Record

“Slept terribly last night (cold, cold, cold) and started out in a foul mood. I’ve broken a zip on my jacket, both ski tips are coming apart, and for the first hour of today, each tug on the sledge harness made me feel sick. The ice conditions were horrendous; giant pressures ridges and piles of thigh-deep drifted snow. I felt shattered, and I was only starting my second full day.

Yet by the last hour of the day, when I skied through the beautiful twilight with Massive Attack’s Unfinished Sympathy on my headphones, I wouldn’t have changed places with anyone.”
