run run as fast as you can

Paul did amazingly, brilliantly well on Sunday, despite the heat. People were mad enough to run in costumes (Bakewell tarts, ScoobyDoo, Fred Flintstone in a car, several Elvises/Elvii, Borat, Bubbles Devere and her arch rival Desiree, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and a Vegas showgirl, to name a few) and even the pros completed the run at a slower time than usual. The weather was great for spectators, not so great when you need to run 26 miles with 37,000 people.

Paul completed the marathon relatively unscathed (with some impressive blisters, mind) and made us all incredibly proud. I got tired just watching, and had an extra sausage that evening to compensate for all those calories I must have lost. What?
