Wittmack traversed 13 countries to complete his adventure.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, someone who traveled 7,000 miles to be in chat will join us. Adventurer/Explorer Charlie Wittmack will be here to tell the story of his "World Triathlon," the subject of Wayne Drehs' recent Outside the Lines story, as well as Sunday's "Outside the Lines" airing at 9 a.m. ET on ESPN2.

The 34-year-old Wittmack seems like an average guy, but within his 5-foot-7, 145-pound frame is a burning need to push his body beyond its limit. It's the reason last summer that he sold his house and car and left his wife, his son and his job to complete this improbable test of human endurance. Starting at the origin of the River Thames in England, the plan was to swim, cycle, run and climb his until he stood on the summit of Mount Everest. Death, he said, was the only thing that could stop him.

Send your questions now and join Wittmack Thursday at 3 p.m. ET!
