Paris Marathon 2014

Posted: Yesterday at 23:01

Greetings from Bean Town. It's marathon madness here - you can't move for film crews and people in blue and yellow jackets. Every shop has messages for the runners in the window. But most importantly, I've found a local caff that serves huge slices of cake .

I'd love to get a report like that from the doctor

For those running around the 4 hour mark, why not attempt a world record? Apparently the record for fastest marathon dressed as a crustacean was beaten on Sunday in a finishing time of 3:55, by a guy dressed as a lobster.

Go on, you know you want to google 'prawn suits' .

It's a training run for Comrades. Sadly, I can't afford to push eyeballs-out for a PB because it would take me too long to recover, I need to be back running again the following week. I'd like to get a similar time to Barcelona (ie just under 4) but if I feel I'm having to push too hard to get that, I'll ease off.

Steve - I don't know if you ever saw us on Sunday but we were trying to track you round. Great job on finishing London even faster than Paris, when you weren't even sure you'd be able to run either of them.

For those who are thinking of setting new targets post Paris, remember goals don't have to mean faster - they can also mean longer ...

Mattywarr - just watched your video - it's great, a real tear-jerker. And I spotted a couple of other familiar faces at 6:55 .

how many others came running out of the Bois de Boulogne hand in hand with a transvestite in pink stilettos?

You'd be surprised. It is Paris, after all

Some cracking performances from our Paris threaders out there today, in London and Rotterdam. Today I learned that a whistle is a good way of saving your vocal chords, and that it's not easy to hold a flagpole in  a stiff breeze. Thanks to Jellybum, Keyzer Suze and Mr Keyzer Suze for turning out for the supporter thing. And full marks to Whale Man for running London dressed as not one but two whales .
