Ian used to post here, under the guise of @omo, and then changed his name to something I can't remember before hanging up his Thumped spurs. You'll remember him, funny fucker, made Large Mound videos etc.

A couple of years back, like 2, he took up running. Last night, he did something astonishing.

An ultra marathon, run SOLO within 2km of his home and starting at 2am to maximise social distancing, all to raise money for special care baby units across the country, in memory of his son, Hank.

Check this shit out

and then, if you have a spare couple of quid, you can donate here


People often to 5ks or marathons for charity, and it's great, but the effort and determination behind this is astounding. Well done that man

He has an article about grief and running and stuff in the current edition of the A Little Lifetime magazine. I’ll see if I can get it online.

and here I am struggling to do 5


At a certain point something clicks and you can settle in and run... like, 15k or whatever out of nowhere.

I mean, it can do. If you were not some horrendous sedentary fat fuck who sits in his apartment programming bullshit all day it might.

This is a bit more packaged-corporate-sponsored holy shit stuff which mightn't be in the spirit at all, but I still did some raised eyebrow / confused looks.
