If there was a rabbit and a young blonde in that photo you guys could pass for Tweedledum and Tweedledee!No, seriously that is a great shot "one for the billards room."Brisbane is looming!
Rob looks great!
No, Rob looks great, Deek looks like he's not running the Brisbane Marathon!Great photo Rob - grow a mo for Canberra.
Start sponging down your hammies at Brisbane. Nice photo Rob.
I know who would run the fastest time now ;-) And you get a PB in the biggest smile contest. Though the only way you are going to improve on that is with plastic surgery.Superflake is right. Deek's win in the 82 Commonwealth Games is the best Marathon ever run in Brisbane. Pity sponges are no longer a part of the marathon scene. They certainly came in handy for that odd job or two.
I agree that Eddie is a legendAnd so to this endAlthough I needed to change the planI had to run with Eddie the Man!So I turned up on the dayAsking if we could return to plan AAfter 4 runs around the mountain in one weekIt was all that I could do to speakTo Eddie the ManThe leader with the plan.Now Eddie is NOT lyingWhen he says I am NOT flyingEwen the ultra legs have more than lost their zipThey have reached the point of booking their own tripTo a far away landPreferably with some surf and sand!Now as a man of graceEddie didn't complain about the paceWe still found the odd hillAt one point, I thought I would be illBut on we did runWaiting for that HOT(?) Qld sun.As we were chugging alongTigger thought it wouldn't be longUntil Eddie would be carving up the same roadMinus the Tigger loadSetting his legend paceAnd always with grace!For sometime the legs had been feeling shotEventually we reached a spotWhere I said I needed to head for homeIf he wanted, Eddie could go it alone!On our way backI commented about the weight of the packThat I had tested during the runStill hoping for that hot sun.As a man of graceEddie kindly put me in my placeThat pack has changed your gaitDoes this mean I didn't run straight?Finally we got our coffeeLike the others who joined the Legend EddieI wish him well for his Bris runRemember the warnings about the Sun!
Good luck with Brisbane. Sorry, I won't be there to see you at the start and at the end.
