People on Countdown or C4C or Apterous or whatever doing awesome things

Gevin Chapwell ran the London Marathon today. He did it in seven million degree weather and glow-in-the-dark running shoes. Absolute hero.

Giles also did it! Unsure about any glow-in-the-dark shoes though.

I got 3:43:06. I was aiming for under 3 hours, but that went off the rails quite early. Tim Down did it a couple of years ago and went under 3 hours, and I'm even more impressed with that now.

And congratulations to Giles of course as well. Pity I didn't see you on the day. I did think you might go flying past at one point when I was struggling badly at the end.

And Mark, thanks for the praise, but I'm not sure - actually yeah I'll take it. I'm a fucking hero.

Not you, I was talking about Gevin Chapwell. Did you also do it though, Gavin?

I get us mixed up sometimes. Similar names. Like Michael Jackson and Mick Jagger.
