1,000 miles in 7 weeks
And he has only trained for one month. The nutter
Love his shows though. Good luck to him.
I've been following him on twitter and it did seem rather an ambitious feat for such a newbie (but keen) runner! I really hope he doesn't crash and burn after a few days.
Love Eddie Izzard though, I'm seeing his show in November
He's already in a bit of a bad way by the looks of things.
love Eddie's stand up, hope he (erm) can still stand up by the end of it.
Bit of a basic maths fail in the article - 1000 miles in 49 days is surely about 20 a day, not about 30?
Been following him on Twitter. I think he's fantastic to even comtemplate it.
(and the 20 / 30 a day - presumably he's having some rest days in there?)
Hurry up PP, I bought mine a couple of months ago (for Birmingham) and they're not such good seats as I'd have liked!
I heard him on Radio 1 this morning. He has to be mental. 5 weeks training to do 1000 miles. I am amazed there is so little publicity for this not seen anything on any of the major news sites. Perhaps they thought it was a joke. My wife did this morning until she Googled it.

I've been trying to find the route he's taking - Can't seem to find anything (I googled and just ended up with a link to a thread on Fetch, asking the same question!), but his Cake or Death website gives the route he's already taken and some other useful links for keeping updated on progress......
