yeah he also has the record for mont blanc and kilomanjaro, but even kilo had him on his knees at the end... he wants to do higher peaks.. that will be interesting, theres a limit to how high you can go in running shoes before frost bite will get you, you'll eventually get to an altitude where the weight of footwear and lack of oxygen will preclude running if you want to avoid frost bite
