eddie izzard marathon man

Hannah told me to watch this TV programme. I’m so pleased I followed her advice. As you might already be aware, the programme (it’s a series of three) is about Izzard’s quest to run 43 marathons in 51 days around Britain in aid of Sports Relief. It’s a ridiculous adventure – he isn’t an athlete, he’s never run ONE marathon let alone 43 and he gives himself just 6 weeks to prepare! If you haven’t already seen the series, I think you should (via iPlayer). It’s stirring stuff – fascinating, poignant and funny.
Be inspired!
PS: the final episode is being shown again tonight on BBC3 at 9pm.
