Scott Lloyd running the London Marathon… Still… As a snail! 6 miles for me!


Scott Lloyd is still running the London Marathon… The race was on Apr. 17th however, he is running the race in a 9ft snail costume, propelled by laying on a sled on his stomach, at a pace of a mile a day, hoping to finish the race in 26 days. He was on day 24 May 10th 2011. He is a former professional football player and says that the experience has been hard on the knees… Go figure!

                       He is raising money for the children’s charity

Action for Kids and is hoping to raise 200,000 pounds.

Tonight I ran 6 miles… Took it easy… Didn’t stray from 7mph (except once putting it to 7.1mph) I don’t feel as tired as I did yesterday… That is a good thing!

Cheers
