Don’t worry – I’m not going to tell you I took part, and how great it was. How insane do you think I am?
I can only think of one possible advantage I would gain from entering a marathon: I’d have a valid reason to wear a comedy chicken suit. I’ve not had a reason as good as that since I was invited to the funeral of an ex-girlfriend’s mother.
I note with some interest the number of celebrities who took part in the marathon. Though I was surprised that Jordan took part – isn’t she under some risk of giving herself two black eyes when she jogs?
I shall leave you with this pearl of wisdom from a friend of mine:
“Know how they could liven up the marathon? At every mile marker, they should shoot the last three people.”
