Bless him for doing such a good thing, he looks adorable ^
31 Jul 2009 - 16:28 BST
We seen you running past Saltford Motors Garage (Vauxhall Garage) in Saltford between Bath and Bristol this afternoon. (We were the gooby ones on the roof of the garage)
You are doing a blinding job keep up the good work!
31 Jul 2009 - 18:25 BST
Good luck running Eddie! I wouldn't have gotten through training and running a marathon without going to acupuncture - I have terrible knees. Please find yourself an acupuncturist!!!
31 Jul 2009 - 20:20 BST
We saw you today running past the Central Library in Bristol and I almost fainted seeing you running in your lovely little shorts!! Has made my weekend....
31 Jul 2009 - 21:37 BST
Well done Eddie ! you already had my admiration, but this is above and beyond. Hope your feet hold out !
31 Jul 2009 - 22:45 BST
There is fine line between genius and insanity and you are definitely treading that line! But doing it in such a courageous, and amazing way brings all of our support with you. God bless!
01 Aug 2009 - 03:24 BST
5 Marathons in 5 Days! It's not possible..... but you did it!Proving you really ARE a Runny-type person and a crazy wonderful human being to boot! Thank you for promoting a World Idea... we Are all the same.... we are the Human Family :)
01 Aug 2009 - 03:44 BST
An awesome feat... or should that be feet? Running that far in so many days takes a real passion and commitment to the cause. Sport Relief and the children and communities that will eventually benefit from the money raised are fortunate there is Eddie Izzard in the world :)
01 Aug 2009 - 10:40 BST
Hey Eddie, I saw you a couple of hours ago heading for Cribbs/M5. You were looking pretty fresh and still carrying the flag. Good luck,
01 Aug 2009 - 12:23 BST

My deepest respect and admiration, Eddie, this is truly awesome. Words are failing me (I´m not from your country, you see) so I´ll just bow to you and cheer you on your way. GO, IZ!
01 Aug 2009 - 23:51 BST
I've just come on line to see if I was dreaming but no it's true-I actually did see you jogging along the A48 as I drove home at 4.30 this afternoon!
If it hadn't been for the Welsh flag and the yellow jacket I probably wouldn't have given your group a second glance.
Congratulations on what you're doing and what a shame there wasn't more publicity!
Careful how you go in this attrocious weather.
02 Aug 2009 - 00:49 BST
Haven't been keeping up with your news lately so had no idea you were doing this amazing run. You are incredible.
Will the "action transvestite" be running?
Thank you from all who care about the people of this world.
This is just another reason why I love you. Good luck and look after yourself. xx
02 Aug 2009 - 02:37 BST
Thank you for speaking to us today in Newport, and best of luck for the rest of your adventure. Look after your feet!

It was fantastic to meet Eddie, when he arrived in Bristol, UK on Friday 31st July... he was out of breath, but was in great shape for plenty of talk, interviews and comedy!
First, everyone SHOULD go to the Sport Relief website, and donate and support Eddie on his run around the UK, so go here:
Second - when he arrived in Bristol, I did some filming myself of him as he arrived, using nothing but my.. Apple laptop! (as my phone's camera was rubbish!).
Watch my Eddie Izzard / Sport Relief video here:
I caught Eddie Izzard, as he stopped outside the Hippodrome theatre, filming him and asked him a few questions.
Eddie, also asked me a few questions on why I was filming him, and he said “he found it strange, me filming him, and then posting it online! – but what a great idea!” as perhaps so far, I ask.. “Why, I’m the only person doing this..?”
Eddie - even though it was short n sweet in meeting you in Bristol, it was great to have the opportunity in doing some coverage about the 'Good times' you are doing for Sport Relief!
Would love to meet up with you in London, when you get back!
so Eddie (or his management) please get in touch!
03 Aug 2009 - 11:43 BST
Running! whats up with cars?

03 Aug 2009 - 13:50 BST
i prefer the beads but navys cool .i only manage about 3k a week - you must be a super sex god !
03 Aug 2009 - 17:06 BST
Eddie, proud of you dude, you are the funniest and the craziest. So ... look after yourself, and be adventurous
03 Aug 2009 - 21:32 BST
everyone is so proud of you!
be lucky, and all the best.
your a true hero
04 Aug 2009 - 10:05 BST
This is amazing, so impressed!!! Where is the route map? Would love to run alongside for a bit if you fancy some company?
04 Aug 2009 - 10:19 BST
Just heard about Eddie's marathon(s) for Sport Relief on Radio 1 - this is unbelieveable/mad/brilliant. (And I thought Eddie didn't have time to get to a gym?) Have just donated £20 and off to email friends and family. Go Eddie!!!!!!
04 Aug 2009 - 10:23 BST
Only heard about it on Radio 1 this morning, love it! Off to the 'donate' bit now to add a few pennies. (",)
04 Aug 2009 - 10:30 BST
I only heard about this on the radio this morning! Really impressed, good luck and keep going!! xx
04 Aug 2009 - 10:36 BST
le sage est dans l'habre
good work eddie. donation on the way
04 Aug 2009 - 10:42 BST
I think that he's doing an amazing thing! I think I'm reasonably fit but I'm pretty sure I'd struggle to get through one marathon! As soon as I heard about it I sponsored him £20!
Go Eddie go! If you haven't passed through Leeeds yet please let yah loyal fans of the north know as we all have running shoes ready and waiting if you fancy a spot of company!
It can get a tad lonely up in them there hills!!!!!
04 Aug 2009 - 10:50 BST
Also running a 1100 miles doesn't seem at all crazy to me! personally I think its a good way to spend the summer cos theres nothing good on the tv and the ashes keeps getting rained off so its a nice distraction! keep those knees up son!!
04 Aug 2009 - 10:53 BST
Only just heard about your amazing feat on Radio 1. Can't BELIEVE you were in Newport yesterday and I missed you! Would've loved to have cheered you on. Keep going, you are amazing....can't wait to see you live in Cardiff. XX
04 Aug 2009 - 11:54 BST
Hi Eddie, I will definitely donate to the cause having heard you on Radio 1 this morning, you are absolutely AMAZING, I've never heard of such an incredible attempt, you will go down in history as one of the greats for doing this. It's such a noble and inspiring mission, you must feel brilliant despite the aches. Bear up through the grey drizzle, at least its not scorching hot! Love you!
04 Aug 2009 - 12:02 BST
You are a legend. I'm training for a half marathon and know how tough it is. Keep up the good work - my donation has been made...
04 Aug 2009 - 16:04 BST
Heard you on Radio 1 this morning, Eddie you are a legend!! Have donated to your cause and wish you all the luck in the world, you are amazing xxx
04 Aug 2009 - 17:26 BST
Eddie, I admire you with all the strenght of my heart!! You are such an inspiring man!!! Wish you the best in this crazy mad marathon of marathons across UK! Love you to death!
04 Aug 2009 - 18:42 BST
I'll be impressed when you are running in Chanel heels and a full face of makeup! Keep up the great work! You are an angel and a bee keeper!
04 Aug 2009 - 19:44 BST
Eddie, what a fantastic thing to attempt, very best of luck and I will certainly be sponsoring as soon as I finish writing this. I have been runner for many years and found it hard doing 2 marathons in 4 weeks in 2007 so cant imagine how you must be feeling. Absolute respect and keep on running - will be looking for where and when you will be in Yorkshire, my county. Very best of luck. Sarah
04 Aug 2009 - 20:21 BST
Please marry me Eddie xxx
04 Aug 2009 - 21:34 BST

More power to your wee wheel Eddie, I still can't believe you're doing this - we will be looking out for you in Belfast to cheer you on.....my husband is your doppelganger so you're sure to spot him.
Looking forward to seeing you at the Odyssey in December
05 Aug 2009 - 01:05 BST
oh hes just so brave! and inspirational! I love him o so much!

05 Aug 2009 - 01:31 BST
just heard about your marathon of marathons here in the middle of America! Go, Eddie! Added a little inspiration to the charity fund. Hand it there, we Yanks are rooting for you, too!
05 Aug 2009 - 02:39 BST
Saw you last year at Radio City in New York, Eddie. You always do the unexpected, and this is some feat for your feet! You're a crazy and loving leader, my dear. You're changing yourself, your fans, and the world. Donation on the way. Best of luck from a devoted fan in New York City.
05 Aug 2009 - 02:49 BST
GO EDDIE GO...GO EDDIE GO...detroit and ukraine are rooting for you...dont ask how the flip between the two comes into play
05 Aug 2009 - 09:08 BST
I cannot even begin to tell you how much admiration I have for Eddie at the moment. It is such a fantastic thing to do for charity and such a worthy cause.
Good luck and well done for all the many, many miles you have covered, I can't believe all that you have acheived so far.
You can do it Eddie, we're all behind you!!! x x
05 Aug 2009 - 11:48 BST
go go go. You're doing an amazing thing, big respect to you xxx
05 Aug 2009 - 12:01 BST
As a fellow marathon runner I know how tough just 1 can be. To run so many for such a great cause is amazing!
Good luck with the rest of the journey, if you run though Brighton I'll come and say Hi! (I might even bring you a bottle of lucozade and a banana!!)
05 Aug 2009 - 13:40 BST
Well done Eddie, great effort. I am another Skewen boy born just down the road from Cefn Parc. Lived in America for 10 tears, trying to spread the message of Skewen, goodwill and oneness. Met by a lot of bewildered stares. Must have been the mention of Skewen.
keep up the good work
05 Aug 2009 - 13:45 BST
Great job Eddie! I recently started up running again...I'm in the US Air Force, so it's required. Anyway, keep it up (sort of speak)! Don't forget to stop at the Star Wars Cantina, I hear they make a delicious chicken arrabiata.
05 Aug 2009 - 17:46 BST
Nice one Eddie...heard you on Radio 1 and yes, this needs more publicity. Put up a schedule so we can come and cheer you on mate. Who knows, you might even get some sort of following like Forest Gump did :p
05 Aug 2009 - 19:21 BST
where are you running over the next few days as it'd be great to keep you company for a few miles!
05 Aug 2009 - 20:36 BST
Eddie - You're our hero! Can we interview for our podcast www.runnersroundtable.com? PLEEEESE!
06 Aug 2009 - 00:18 BST

GO EDDIE GO! You are a smasher!
06 Aug 2009 - 03:36 BST
Its a wonderful fantastic thing you are doing Eddie - good on ya! Can we have some pics of your support team so that we can send good vibes to them as well
06 Aug 2009 - 11:02 BST
Hi Eddie and your team.
How do we find out which route you are taking for your run, so we can come and cheer you on, and bring you some home made flap jack and a cup of tea to help you along your way ???
Nigel & Vic
06 Aug 2009 - 11:32 BST
Hi Eddie, I am in awe of your achievement so far and have no doubt that you will finish what you started. In support, me and hubby when for a 3 mile walk last night - I'm shattered this morning! So your journey is mind blowing. Please look after yourself and come back safely. My lovely husband gave me tickets for your Sheffield gig on October 25th, for my birthday on 2nd August. I am so looking forward to it and hope to hear some brilliant stories about your trip around the UK. We will be in row 14 so give me a wave and I will blow you a kiss (or very likely several). Love and best wishes - Jenny.
06 Aug 2009 - 11:46 BST
Truly one of the most awesome and inspiring feats I've ever known.... gives new meaning to 'going for a little stroll'. The downside is that the 5 half marathons I'm doing, in 5 cities in 5 days, seems a little pathetic in comparison.... I guess I can forgive you, purely because you brought the Star Wars Canteen into my life!
Donation is made and well deserved x
06 Aug 2009 - 17:04 BST
Saw you on the A470 between Merthyr and Brecon today, and then gave you a bottle of water between Brecon and Builth, good luck and keep going, I THINK WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS GREAT.
All the best Di and Gary
06 Aug 2009 - 18:54 BST
Hey Eddie, thanks for stopping by in Pwllgloyw. We wish you all the best as you climb the various hills between here and to Builth Wells. It is a great charity so please keep going. Good luck from Nick & Carol in Pwllgloyw.
06 Aug 2009 - 19:08 BST
Go! Eddie! Go... or should that be Allez! Eddie! Allez!! (for those who don't speak French... that last bit was very funny!!!)
06 Aug 2009 - 23:46 BST
RUN EDDIE, RUN EDDIE, RUN EDDIE, RUN, RUN, RUN
HERE COMES THE PEOPLE WITH THERE FUN, FUN, FUN
07 Aug 2009 - 00:12 BST
Great to see you in Builth Wells tonight, Eddie! What a star. You are looking great - v tanned, v lovely in black ...
But please post the route of your run so people can turn out and cheer you on!
Very very best of luck with the remainder of your journey!
07 Aug 2009 - 01:13 BST

07 Aug 2009 - 10:04 BST

Cheers and beers !!!!!!
07 Aug 2009 - 10:07 BST
Apologies school girl error in my last post - let's support Eddie and Sport Relief !!!!!!!
07 Aug 2009 - 10:10 BST
Great work Eddie, for a great cause, really rooting for you. Looking forward to seeing you in the O2 here in Dublin!
"Suddenly there was a terrible roar
all around us and the sky was full

07 Aug 2009 - 16:50 BST
Good old Eddie!
I think it's amazing that you are doing this!
Cant wait to see if I spot you running in the good old English rain.
You are Fabulous! xxx
08 Aug 2009 - 00:42 BST
You totally rock! I can't even run three minutes at a time never mind thirty bloody miles. Will you be my personal trainer?
08 Aug 2009 - 02:28 BST
have always loved your stand up shows. saw dressed to fill and never wet myself more. loved you ever since. plus taken the philosophy of cake or death to heart. my friends are starting to get there.
can't even begin to comprehend what you're going through for sport relief. nuts. phenonemal,
nothing but big love
08 Aug 2009 - 02:45 BST
Hiya Eddie I think you are so fab!! I also live in Skewen just down the road from Cefn Parc and I love living here. You spoke to me on the phone a couple of years ago whilst at a match in Cardiff. My Uncle asked you if you would speak to me and you did, and I've never forgotten it!! I wish you all the luck in the world. Just wished that I knew that you were in Skewen the other day as I would have come and said hi.
08 Aug 2009 - 11:48 BST
Wasn't sure how to find you and then discover you are doing this amazing thing. You are in my head even after all this time. Go, sweetie, go.
08 Aug 2009 - 21:02 BST
Go Eddie. You are a selfless and brave person. You have my utmost respect. Keep going, we are all behind you xxx
08 Aug 2009 - 22:26 BST
You are an inspiration, Eddie. Just one thing, can you possibly find a way that people who have no credit/debit card can donate please? I can't afford much but I do want to acknowledge your great achievement. Thanks love. x
09 Aug 2009 - 02:38 BST
Eddie you are simpy amazing.
09 Aug 2009 - 15:13 BST
Whoa!!! You GO Mister I. What a BADASS!! Please, do not injure yourself so much that you'll be laid up for months. I hope you're coming to Houston, TX.
10 Aug 2009 - 00:04 BST
You are amazing! You really are! We cannot praise you enough for the amazing feat you are taking part in. All your fans (every single one of them) are completely, 100% behind you. Keep going Eddie, you really are spectacular.
P.S. You look cute in those little shorts!
10 Aug 2009 - 00:05 BST
Brilliant Eddie... and sorry I missed you in Bristol. Have just donated, but let us know how much you've made for a brilliant cause too.
11 Aug 2009 - 10:47 BST
on Sunday I worked dressed in a pink bunny mascot - it was hot and uncomfortable, but fun. I'll donate my wage to Sport Relief!
go Eddie, go! XOXO
11 Aug 2009 - 12:32 BST
Keep going Eddie! I'm very impressed and utterly amazed at your progress. I do a charity walk once a year to the last away game of my local football club - I did just 20 miles a day for two days last season - I feel ashamed about the whinging afterwards considering what you're doing!
Agree with others that it's been poorly publicised - am trying to rectify that via facebook and twitter - keep going!
11 Aug 2009 - 17:49 BST
i got to met him during his quick pit stop!
he is amazing! here is this pic:
11 Aug 2009 - 18:25 BST

Had pic taken with Sir Eddie ( well he should be ) today in Liverpool, thankfully he wasnt covered in bees or dicing with cake or death, but was doing great on such a warm day
Keep it up Mr Izzard, cant wait to see you in October at the Arena
12 Aug 2009 - 15:58 BST
Well done Eddie great work. LOVE you!! xx
12 Aug 2009 - 18:12 BST
You Rock, Eddie Iz!
12 Aug 2009 - 18:41 BST
Reading your progress daily gives me goosebumps...this is such a wonderful giving of yourself. I have so much respect for you and your positive, determined, truly "painstaking" undertaking. All my support goes out to you. Bonne Chance!
12 Aug 2009 - 18:49 BST
Fantastic thing you're doing Eddie and fantastic to meet you today.
You need not have shown me how to use your phone to take a picture (when getting into Ormskirk) - I too experience technojoy!
Keep it up, you're a legend!
12 Aug 2009 - 22:03 BST
Met Eddie at the Peir Head in Liverpool this morning he looked amazing! So impressed he gets my vote. As we would say here in Liverpool Nice one Eddie.
12 Aug 2009 - 22:13 BST
yay!! you are SOOO cool! love it! go go go!! :o)
12 Aug 2009 - 22:38 BST
Your piece on spelling has inspired my dyslexic 10yr old Grandson - he has spent his summer break writing the hilarious 'Chicken Diaries' - moved to see his humour in print like you. Can't thank you enough! Total breakthrough for him!
He lives in America and has all his friends word perfect on 'the cake sketch', 'the flag sketch' etc car journeys ensure we are all word perfect by the end.
My sister and I have tickets for the London Show on Dec 4 can't wait! Total respect for the run.Lots of love
13 Aug 2009 - 13:32 BST
well done mr your fantastic
13 Aug 2009 - 19:56 BST
<<< Located in Denmark, but I will keep an eye for ya Eddie!
.... nope still nothing.. bloody bugger..
14 Aug 2009 - 06:03 BST
Saw you today at Beetham on the A6 heading towards Milnthorpe - rubbish weather but love your yellow jacket! When I realised it was you turned around to say hello, but you'd disappeared up a side road! Off to the sponsorship page as we speak . . . .
14 Aug 2009 - 16:57 BST
What a bees knees thing to do! I am in utter admiration. You're in Kendal tonight and I suspect coming up our way tomorrow (over Shap and up towards Carlisle?)
I've gotta get me out to see if I can spot you. I hope that like me MANY folks shunt to the donation page.
Hope your nice kneesies are coping!!
14 Aug 2009 - 19:26 BST
14 Aug 2009 - 21:50 BST
Hey Eddie, Great to speak to you on the phone today while passing through Lancaster. Good Luck
Helen & Lee xxx
14 Aug 2009 - 23:37 BST
Thought you were leaving Kendal to continue today? Maybe this foul wet and windy Lake district weather made you rethink a day off schedule! If so, don't blame you. I think its October not August. If you're having a day off in Kendal ENJOY!
15 Aug 2009 - 14:53 BST
just seen in Kesick......Keswick...thanks a lot for a great nights entertainment...............
16 Aug 2009 - 20:54 BST
So, what happened at Keswick show? Any pictures? What routines did he do? Please post account and pix, for those of us far away.
17 Aug 2009 - 10:32 BST
I tried to get Keswick tickets within a few mins of the announcement, I even drove to Keswick (not TOO far from home) and JUST missed out. They had sold out. Boo hoo.
17 Aug 2009 - 13:04 BST
I met you on the A6 a few days ago north of Lancaster, I was on the motorbike and ran for a bit with you in my leathers. Such a pleasure to meet you,
Good luck with the rest of the run
17 Aug 2009 - 19:32 BST
Just like that - to decide to do a gig - how absolutely brilliant! Eddie, you must have so much going 'round in your head - You are very talented! I hope you add more gigs in America!! Love ya!
17 Aug 2009 - 22:57 BST
Hi Eddie, just saw you running out of Carlisle, stopped to wish you luck, not sure I did so adequately..... AM a big fan and my words got jumbled...GOOD LUCK!!
Its pouring now, hope you some shelter...
18 Aug 2009 - 12:31 BST
Well done Eddie what a crazy gorgeous person you are inside and out...and to perform a gig too have even more admiration for you I have just sent my donation off - when do you get back to London
18 Aug 2009 - 23:13 BST
Way to go, Eddie! You rock! Please come to Southern California (Irvine Amphitheatre, maybe?) We love you here!
19 Aug 2009 - 13:45 BST
eddie you are the man! stop by and I'll do some squats with you.
much peace, love, luck and limbering
19 Aug 2009 - 14:07 BST
We are the first primary school as you come into Stranraer. Please come in for refreshments, we need cheering up on a Friday!! Kirsty left a post it under your windscreen wiper last night! We would love an icecream!!
21 Aug 2009 - 09:53 BST
I have only just heard about this. What a guy! I cant quite express how humbled I feel and how impressed I am by your efforts.
Keep them knees up!
Is there a map anywhere of Eddies route?
Can anyone tell me this please?
21 Aug 2009 - 12:44 BST
Truly inspirational. We caught up with you on your way from Newton Stewart to Stranraer. http://twitpic.com/ep9x6 Good luck to you and may you raise bucket loads of cash for Sport Relief
Heather & Peter
21 Aug 2009 - 14:19 BST
got a kiss from eddie at the side of the road in stranraer, how smug am i, he he, what a guy good on you eddie xxxx
23 Aug 2009 - 16:32 BST
Hello! Saw you running down the Upper Newtownards Road in the rain (well, what else, it's Belfast) this afternoon. Would need St. John's Ambulance alongside if it was me, so very impressed! Didn't know about the run until I got home and googled it, so it definitely counts as the most surreal moment of the year so far!! You're doing a brilliant thing, keep it up! Off to donate now! xx

Oh and by the way: Cake or Death?

02 Sep 2009 - 00:14 BST
Eddie! What a wonderful bloke you are, a true Super Hero! Why are we not hearing daily reports on the news channels? This is the sort of news we want to hear. People want to know where you are each day so they can get out and give you the support you deserve. I am full of admiration for you, as a runner ( part time) I appreciate what an incredible feat this is. You are amazing Eddie!
02 Sep 2009 - 14:57 BST
Hope you don't wear yourself out so much that you can't do your Stripped Tour. Love you and think what you are doing is amazing - I've donated and I'll tell all my friends to as well. Bloody well done xxxxx

Richies! What happened to the Richies???
I want the Richies!
03 Sep 2009 - 17:07 BST
Well done Eddie.
People have asked how they can know where you are each day. There's a link at www.eddieizzard.com. "Look at Eddies' latest route". He seems to be in the northeast today. (Friday).
04 Sep 2009 - 13:35 BST
To observe what amazing courage and gritty determination Eddie has, you should have been on the road from Otterburn to Belsay yesterday ( Sept 3rd).He was running through torrential rain and biting winds , and each lorry and car that drove by him drenched him and his running mate even more. It was a long and lonely road, - we appeared to be the only supporters cheering him on for miles around. We are still overwhelmed with admiration for what he is achieving. Sponsoring you will be a total pleasure.
04 Sep 2009 - 14:50 BST
Looking good Eddie, saw you in my area yesterday, coming towards Ponteland village in Northumberland (about 1/4 mile from my house). Couldn't believe it was you, You were stopped at the side of the road. I was going to stop and say hello but I got all star struck so just carried on home.
You're doing a great job, for a great charity.
All the best

16 Sep 2009 - 09:39 BST
It is done. Amazing!! Many many congrats. You appeared even in a German local newspaper today: Schauspieler laeuft 43 Marathons in 51 Tagen London Der britische Schauspieler Eddie Izzard hat in 51 Tagen zu Wohltaetigkeitszwecken 43 Marathons bestritten. "Ich fuehle mich gut", sagte Izzard bei einem Empfang bei Premierminister Gordon Brown in London. "Meine Beine tun weh, mein Koerper schmerzt, ich bin sher muede", raeumte der Darsteller aber mit Blick auf die 1800 gelaufenen Kilometer ein. "Ich habe meine Zehennaegel verloren und hatte Blasen", sagte Izzard. (Rheinische Post, 17/09/2009)
Enjoy your well deserved rest. Schlaf gut ;-) Liebe Gruesse aus Deutschland, Annette
17 Sep 2009 - 09:57 BST
Congratulations Eddie! The most amazing achievement. You are a beautiful human being with a truly inspirational spirit!
Well done you!
19 Sep 2009 - 16:12 BST
Oh my lord, sat watching the unspeakable marathon of marathons and there are not only goosepimples but tears welling up, threatening to escape at the road to Stranraer. Words can't do it justice. I think I'd rather eat my own eyeballs than even contemplate this challenge. Absoutely outstanding. God knows how you did it, but bloody well done old bean. How much money did you want?! Consider it done... xx
11 Mar 2010 - 23:29 GMT
Eddie this is unbelievable. You are truly inspirational.
14 Mar 2010 - 01:38 GMT
You are truly inspirational! I ran the london marathon 2 years ago and remember during the training how hard it is to keep running day after day. Obviously i didn't run a marathon each time, it was training but it was still so hard to keep motivated and positive.
Now i have your image burnt into my brain and i will use it when it gets tough. I hope you're proud, i defy you not to be, what an acheivement.
Well done Eddie x
14 Mar 2010 - 18:00 GMT
hi well done you are doing great i could never do what you are doing i mean the stress of your feet and i cant believe how you could do it in the time you have but a really big well done
16 Mar 2010 - 13:18 GMT
by the way where are you running next keep it up all the great work
16 Mar 2010 - 13:23 GMT
Changed me, Thank you Eddie.
I saw an Action Transvestite, he made me cry in a beautiful way.
17 Mar 2010 - 16:38 GMT
eddie, i followed all the info when you were running, and have been watching the programme on tv. i have been a huge fan of yours for years and was lucky enough to see your show in december, brilliant!! i just wanted to say you are amazing, i know many people have said it and will continue to say it but seriously, what you have done for sprot relief and for people in the world who feel lost is wonderful. i have watched the programme each week and been moved to tears each time. my mum died when i was 9 and i agree with you, you do lock things away and you do hold things in. when my mum died i felt that i didn't belong, that what happened would stop me doing anything in the future, but what you've made me realise is that it is a reason to be, a reason to live and to achieve things you only dreamt of. thank you so much for making me and others see things differently, you are amazing, all my love, lauren sambridge. xxxx
19 Mar 2010 - 16:26 GMT
I've just seen your series on BBC I Player, wow, what can i say, you drove me to tears, many people pay lip service to what you have achieved but I thank I understand what pain you have gone through...a true inspiration, do not under-estimate what you have achieved...incredible...I have a brain tumour and you have given me some extra motivation to complete my dream of another marathon...you are amazing...oh yes, i'm also driven to give more money to Sport Relief. Keep it up...oh by the way, you are also very talented comedian.
20 Mar 2010 - 21:27 GMT
I just saw the repeat of you running those marathons... You're an inspiration.... Rock on Eddie... Rock on!!!
