Sub 2 Hour Marathons, Drug Cheats and Emus Galore.
Anyone see about the sub 2 hour marathon attempt earlier today?
Crazy how some are portraying it as a failure when the man came within 26 seconds of his goal. Pretty intense. I wish they’d let Lance Armstrong have a go at the sub 2 hour marathon. Jack him up on crystal meth and fire him over the Loch Ness Marathon course. Fucker wouldn’t stop until he was at John O’Groats.
In fact that’s the only way to deter drugs cheats. If you fail a piss test then you’re gonna have to surrender your body to science. We will fill you body full of hi-tech space drugs and make you run a sub 90 minute marathon even if your legs fall off at the end. Most of the Russian olympic team would die for our entertainment in the end.
On a more serious note, it’s only a matter of time before the sub 2 hour barrier is broken. This attempt of 2:00:24 has shown that it is within the realms of possibility. It just takes the right runner on the right course in the right mindset. Easier said than done but it will happen.
I seem to be getting slower..
I went out on the run tonight around Tottenham and it was one of the most difficult runs I’ve done. I’m worried I’ve fucked up my health as I don’t remember running being this hard. Liverpool to Manchester was only 3 weeks ago today but already it seems like a lifetime ago.
I don’t really get bad runs any more. That’s what makes this so odd. It probably didn’t help that I had an entire tray of Guylian seashells for breakfast alongside a pizza for lunch. I don’t think I’ll be shooting for a sub 4 marathon let alone a sub 2 hour marathon anytime soon.
To cheer you up here’s a guy who jogs upside down in a strange attempt to make emus come to him. He’s Australian so he doesn’t know any better.
Emus seem like cool birds. It’s just their owners that tend to be fucking arseholes. First there was Rod Hull, now there’s this twat.
