I was absolutely blown away by Mr Izzard's feat this last week. I refer of course to his fantastic consecutive marathon running around the UK for Sport Relief. 43 marathons in 51 days is unbelievable, especially when you are 48, fat and unfit.
I take nothing away from David Walliams, nor Christine Bleakley who did great things themselves, but Eddie's feat has completely blown me away.
Although I felt for him every time he stopped to nurse a new injury, it made my recent escapade feel like a walk in the park. I wonder how his body is coping since he completed this task - it might be one hell of a withdrawal.
If I wore a hat, I would gladly take it off for this man.
This is a great interview:
