Eddie Iz Running - Tuesday 4th August
04 Aug 2009
Eddie had to run through lots of rain today. There was a real downpour this morning when he started off which was pretty horrible. Most of the roads he was running on were flooded and he broke his glasses as he tried to jump over the rivers of water!
Scott Mills interviewed him on BBC Radio 1 this morning, with lorries constantly going past in the background! People kept beeping their horns as they went by too which was great for encouragement but maybe not so great for radio!
In Bridgend, a bunch of local army guys in training ran with him for a while which was brilliant.
Eddie also met some little kids in Margam, he signed their arms and they went for a ride on the BBC film crew’s rickshaw around the car park of the Twelve Knights pub! Lunch at the pub consisted of bacon sarnies and Ribena.
Unfortunately one of the team managed to drop Eddie’s iPhone so it now has a cracked screen!
