Eddie IZ Running - Friday September 4th
04 Sep 2009
Finished early – before 6pm - yesterday which was excellent and all to plan. Eddie got more recovery time so the early start really paid off.
Last night Greg Whyte, Steve Cramm and Allison Curbishley met Eddie for dinner in the hotel which was great but the evening ended up quite late – 10.30pm!
Friday started earlier again. The weather is horrible as the temperature really dropped and made it quite nasty. Eddie went through Newcastle and over the Millennium Bridge. Greg ran with Eddie and Steve and Allison were on bikes and Steve’s daughter ran too. They stayed with Eddie for 10 miles, until he reached the Angel of the North and all stopped to have a look. They went to a little town called ‘Pity Me’ which was quite odd! Greg stayed with Eddie until Durham. Eddie’s wet and cold now which means when he stops he is even more freezing than when running. The rickshaw is power assisted and ran out of batteries because it’s been so hilly. So it’s entirely up to Ted to cycle with the 2 or 3 of the film crew plus equipment. But going downhill he is fine!
Eddie has completed 32 marathons and is on number 33 in 40 days today - please support him here!
