He didn’t even decide to run in the ultra-marathon until the night before!
But South African rugby player and school teacher Bill Payn, a member of the famed Springboks national team, turned up for the 56-mile Comrades Marathon that honors fallen WWI soldiers and…well, read this from South Africa’s Highway Mail:
“He ran the race in rugby boots, stopped for a chicken curry in Hillcrest, drank beer in a Drummond hotel, accepted peach schnapps en route, and enjoyed tea and cake with his family in Pietermaritzburg before finishing in 8th position. Payn played a club rugby match the next day.”
This doesn’t mention his breakfast of bacon and eggs.
A LEGEND DESERVES A LEGENDARY TOAST
To honor the memory of Badass Bill Payn, we raise a toast of the most appropriate beverage we can think of: A 12-ounce can of Kill Cliff Ignite Legendary Lemon Berry, packed with delicious things that enhance hydration for peak body performance, antioxidants to reduce inflammation, a blend of natural nutrients to increase cognitive pathways, Vitamin C and ginger root to boost immune systems, and it does it all with NO sugar and only 20 calories.
Did we mention 150mg of clean caffeine that doesn’t spike or crash? It’s true. Get some before your next ultra-marathon and/or rugby match.
