I might as well say I just ate a car.

I’m going to preface this post by saying that I mostly think this guy is a moron.

This is just crazy.

This is just crazy.

Meet the real life Forrest Gump. This is Eddie Izzard. Eddie spent 5 weeks training for his first marathon. It took him 10 hours. Then the next day, he ran another marathon. Then the next day, he ran another marathon.

In fact, Eddie has run 43 marathons in 51 days. He doesn’t have toenails anymore. His blisters have blisters. His body is eating itself. Gross. He says he’s doing it to raise money for charity.

While I think this guy may have a few screws loose, he did make a great comment. He says that when he tells people how many races he’s done, he might as well say “I’ve just eaten a car.” What a great line. I feel like that all the time.

I am not an athlete. I am not a runner. In 7th grade, when the evil PE coaches made us run the mile for the Presidential Fitness Test, I didn’t think I’d make it. When I decided to run a marathon, people looked at me like I had three heads. I might as well have said I was going to eat a car. 

Well, I did eat that car. And so did Eddie. Read more about Eddie’s adventure here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/8256589.stm
