Way to go Tony......after this a normal IM will seem like a walk in the park.

I will do mate, he is currently 3 marathons away from completion. Ankles, knees and hips hurt but he hopes to finish before 11 days are up.

well this afternoon he was pretty close to nailing another marathon so I have no idea at the moment, he had lost a few places to 9th as others put on a spurt so I hope by the time we wake up he will have finished.

just checked, at 1pm he had 68km to go.

He must be done by now, surely, even if he was crawling. Well done Tony!

Now, ask him how much sleep he had. ;o)

This is from Heather at 8pm last night...

Have just spoken to Tony and he asked me to pass on the news. Firstly, thanks to all who are taking such an interest in how he is doing.

He now has a very sore leg - partly the problem he had before flaring up, and partly falling over a barrier after marathon 5. He ran the first five marathons but has had to hobble since. He sounded fine, just the leg very sore. His plan is to do some more tonight, have a sleep and give the leg a rest and then finish off in the morning - aiming to finish in 12 days if he does it by 11.10 in the morning. Kevin is a great help, walking with him and Brian too has been a star..

Not long to go now. love to all, Heather

Can we get him for a guest visit on here after? It feels like he's a bit of a celebrity now.

OK, for anyone interested I have access to Tony's blog and now ready to be publicised DECA STORY.

You will find it here.

Makes for a great read and a painfull finish. I for one have a lot of respect for the few that have finished this race and Tony is a true champ.

Hope you enjoy the read.


ps. Someone do a linky please.
