Eddie Iz Hard

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:


  1. Absolutely. Just cannot believe that someone in his unprepared physical state could achieve that. Amazing. Where there's a will n' all that....?

  2. I totally agree with you both. Before last week, I used to think Eddie Izard = black nail varnish! Now, the only word that comes to mind when hearing his name is "RESPECT!"

  3. 2 creme eggs in 2 days is enough

  4. I have a major crush on him. And now I heart him a whole lot more.

  5. Hmmmmm....wonder if I could do 44 marathons in 51 days.....

  6. I will eat 44 easter eggs in 51 minutes. I dont care if I get sponsored or not. I'm just greedy.
