Saturday the 25th October will be the 4th anniversary of the run and also my very last road day! I am hoping as many people can run or cycle as possible, Tour de France style, the work has been done so lets have a leisurely run into the capital for the last road day Sunday a rest day. The world run will be only completed when my foot hits the finish line in Merrion Square North at 3.05pm on Monday, Yes folks, I am slow, I hope there will still be people there at the finish line!!

Friday 23rd my last full day on the road was very enjoyable Once again I ran the 38km with Jesper Olsen. Making the trip from Arklow was Kevin Scanlon. Also my host from last night Paul Mahon who ran with me in Colombia for a couple of days back then. Also running today were Gary Seery who came from Dublin, Sheamus running his second day, Sheamus will be running the marathon, Good luck mate you have been a great help.
A few nice women also turned up and ran for an hour or so.
More great crewing by Siobhan Clifford of Blue Bubble Marketing and Michael Gillan my Aussie crew man who came over for the finish.
In the afternoon Gerry Duffy turned up also and ran about 5km
Irish Times athletics journalist and long time follower of the blog Ian O’Riordan dropped by for a natter just as Kevin and Siobhan made a display of a few of the flags we will be parading at the end of the marathon on Monday. Yes there will be a 41 flag parade of the 41 countries run
Thanks to Kevin Scanlon for organizing the flags!
We just happened to be running by a golf course and saw an abandoned sofa so decided on a picnic. I did the interview sitting on the sofa and then Ian ran about three km with us
A great day we even met an Irish mountain bike Olympian from 2004 called Jenny. When I sang a rendition of The Killers hit ‘ Jenny was a friend of mine ‘ she told me she was married!!!!!
