Do ya think it's too late to run the marathon on Sunday?

I haven't run - except to catch the train - in about 2 years but after running about a mile today, I think I could tackle the marathon…..How hard could it be…..?

    It's only another 25 miles as long as you take it steady it should be a doddle.

    That’s exactly what I'm thinking CJC. The hardest part about the marathon is the running and this morning I proved that I can do that, that I'm good at the running part….Now all I need is some kind of costume.....

    and it has to be bright pink so we can spot you - have you thought about a neon arrow flashing above your head??

    tracy

    Not sure about an arrow…..but an halo would be fitting…..who wouldn't trust a man with an halo???

    But wouldn't it trip you up seeing as it's around your feet?

    Matt, with your extensive knowledge of London, surely you could include a few shortcuts on your marathon run? They only film the start and end and just follow the famous runners through the entire journey. I am sure with a bit of forward planning you could shave ten or fifteen miles off!!

    Or!!! Wait just a mo, I have a brilliant idea, rope your evil twin London Natt in the plan, put a wedge on at the bookies and it's a win win situation for all!

    Make sure you dress identically not in your usual coordinating shades of velour jogging bottoms. We need to make sure you both are identical, the way we made you.....

    Cullen, I only have extensive knowledge of South London.....North London is like a foreign country to me....I get homesick crossing the river to go t'up North

    LondonNatt? Doing the marathon with me? Hmmmmm......thats a good idea that, but I don't think he'll do it.....he runs away as fast as he can now whenever he sees me with a rope......i think that's because of the alleged kidnapping attempt I made.....yes, I got the rope, bought a camara, rented an underground cave, wrote down in arabic a diatribe against the invading infidels and bought a machete.......but that doesn't mean I was planning to have him offed and then blame his death on them extremist folks! My lawyer proved it court, so he's just a baby....
  • CullenCullen Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 592
    I love that word, diatribe. I love the way it rumbles round and down my tongue and trickles around my teeth. Diatribe...mmmm....denunciatory harangue just doesn't give the same sort of kick.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with an occasional display of extremism. Courts, eh! They try you and then they throw you, (hopefully out, not into jail)

    See can you lull him into a false sense of security and then offer to treat him to a new outfit. I'm sure he''l fall for it. You could buy him shorts and running shoes.

    I didn't realise you were a stranger in North London. Ever considered buying hi tec sun glasses with sat nav loaded in the frames and a sweet girlie voice in your ear whispering "You have reached your destination..." My voice is called MeJulie. Number Two son's sat nav has a male septic tank voice called Jimmy. I worry about that boy.
  • LondonMattLondonMatt Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 1,110
    MeJulie :laugh:

    I'd like to have Mr T in my ear….his voice I mean….be quite funny that….. Murray Walker would be nice as well…..not too sure about the girly voice though. Girls are notoriously bad at navigating, she'd just get me lost all the time…. or get distracted when I drive past a shoe shop….can't be having her force me to pull over so she can shop "I'll be five minutes, I swear" :001_rolleyes:

    ….that is how sat-navs work, right?

    Just to add a drop to the ocean of rampant sexism... if it were anything like my ex navigating it'd be "Turn left, umm, I meant the other left" :001_tt2:
