Eddie Izzard. The man ran something like a marathon a day for 30 days for charity in the UK a few years ago. With zero training or running experience. Sheer bloody minded ness git him through it. I was in awe of the man before this feat already. Lost his Mother aged 5. Cut his teeth for years as a street performer before finding international fame as a stand up comedian of eccentric genius.
