The unlikely marathon man

The unlikely marathon, Antony Currie, far left

Those who know him might not believe it. Antony Currie, our US editor, actually managed to complete a marathon.

He ran in Chicago on October 12 and finished in exactly five hours. That was slower than hoped for, but according to one source in New York he should be happy just to finish: "You should have seen him after his first training run just before Easter. He ran a mile, stopped three times, and then couldn't walk for three days." In his defence, Currie says it was the first time he'd run in 16 years.

He had other excuses as well: he had a "sore foot" in the late summer, and "the 'flu" for three weeks before the race. Oh, and then the classic one of "it was hot in Chicago that day".

But finish he did, with no ill effects to speak of.

He ran to raise money for two charities. One, the Lawrence Home Nursing team, was set up in memory of the father of one of his friends and provides palliative care at home for the terminally ill.
