You claim, without justification, my posts were nasty.

 

You insult me.

 

You have given yourself an aggressive name.

 

It would appear, on the evidence, that you are the nasty one. But you don't like to look at objective analysis of the facts.

 

Shall we call a halt to this childishness?

I guess they dont teach marines how to hydrate & replace electrolytes. Your 15 minutes is up hero..........next

A real marine would have planned and prepared better, and been tough enough to accomplish a daily jog without collapsing in a shambolic heap.

This is what happens when you try to ingratiate yourself with the Thais.

Swollen joints?

Strange you say that because in my experience with Thais they always discourage me from walking. Take a motorbike taxi! Take a  songteow! is the cry I always hear.

Indeed, it is strange to see them walk anywhere. Maybe it is because of the short legs?

I will put my money where your mouth is and sponsor you at 10 baht per km.

 

Are you up for that. Of course you will have to supply your own support team and not cheat on the way, but I am sure that you will be able to do it, just to prove that you are better then one of her Majesty's Royals.

Cheap Charlie :biggrin:

 

I don't need no "support team".

 

And I won't cheat = I won't claim to be a hero marine or SAS.

I'm writing this as I run to a Halloween shop on Sukhumvit to buy a Royal Marine uniform for the rest of my marathon.

Why am I a cheap charlie? It will cost me between 7 and 8,000 thb but I am sure that you will be able to get other sponsors as did the Royal.


He was smart though, and he realised that without a support team it is an impossible task.


He has never claimed to be a hero, just one of Her Majesties Royal Marines, nor has he claimed to be SAS.


What is your claim to fame? Have you ever been in any armed forces.


So you are going to do the same run with no support and not cheating at all.


Good for you.

 

Go for it and please keep all of us on TVF informed of your progress on a daily basis.


After all it is only about 792 km using the route 1.


Have a nice day.
