The man is a legend.

Although his tweets are disappointingly devoid of humour.

Mind you, I bet he's hurting a bit by now.

He was funny as he was running. I always thought his comedy stuff showed him to be a loony. I think this confirms it !

Ooooh how exciting Cougs! Did you just happen upon him when you were out running or did you go out looking for him? He's been putting pics of people he's met on his travels on his Twitter, did he take a pic of you?

LouLou - bit of both really - I was running from work that night anyway - and his route was right past my work - so made sense to at least head off that way. I thought he'd be with loads of people - but it was just him running and two lads that had only come out to wish him luck and somehow got dragged along with it ! They were more relieved than Eddie to see the finish.
No photos of me - thank god - but they were filming it from a little tuk tuk thing - cant see that I'll make the program though ! He's gonna have a fair few hours of tape !

I think it is being filmed for BBC Three as there are two video diaries on Youtube and both have the BBC Three logo on them.

Actual he is being filmed for BBC Three but you are going to have to wait until 2010 to see it!

he's still funny...

Certainly an inspiration, just wonder why it's not getting much pulicity...hope he completes it.

i quite like this where he is running on his own with just a few people coming out to join him

I also think this stripped down, low key thing is testament to the fact he is undoubtedly a modest, but clearly determined, chap and more power to him.

There should really be a movement to get a mass of runners to accompany him on his last lap.

But he has to be first over the line, obv.

I'm so going to go running with him when he reaches edinburgh! How awesome would that be...I'll be keeping a close eye on progress and crossed fingers I'm not away when he gets here...

 I had no idea he was doing this until I saw this thread.

He's already passed us by in Wales. Low key maybe, but think it'll have to ramp up to get some more cash. Hope he does well on all fronts
