Buena Suerte! To all the runners in Mondays Dublin  Marathon.

Enjoy yourselves, I still am after nearly 13.100 km since last year marathon. And if one more person calls me Forest Gump! At least he was smart to stop in Los Angeles. I will be crossing from Nicaragua to Costa Rica as the tailenders are coming in in Dublin.

Enjoy and I will see you in 2014. I am on schedule… 13k is my target per DCM! :)

Unfortunately my tracking device is not working now but you can follow my progress as best as possible till I get it fixed. i prefer to give interviews when i am not running, when i have finished for the day. Take care and thanks for your interest. Tony

    Hola creo que alrededor de 13 o el 14 de noviembre, pero no podemos estar seguros! Desafortunadamente, mi dispositivo de rastreo no está funcionando ahora, pero puedes seguir mi progreso de la mejor manera posible hasta que te lo arreglen. Prefiero dar entrevistas cuando no estoy corriendo, cuando yo haya terminado para el día. Tenga cuidado y gracias por tu interés. tony

About Tony

I have always considered myself to be an average runner. In school, I was even bullied for I was a sports wimp. Through hard work, dedication, perseverance, self-belief and a strong mind I succeeded in not only running around the world but breaking four ultra running world records during my competitive career. Having previously cycled around the world I didn't start running until I was almost 30. Then I had a dream of running around the world. For many reasons, I waited for over 20 years. One reason was to establish my pedigree as an endurance athlete. I started and finished my world run as the current World Record-Holder for 48 Hours Indoor Track 426 kilometres (265 miles), a record I have held since 2007. I also broke and still hold the World Record for 48 hours on a Treadmill 405 kilometres (251 miles) in 2008. When I retired from competition, more pleasing than any of my world, European or Irish records I had the respect of my fellow athletes from all over the world - in my opinion, sports greatest reward - an achievement I am most proud of. Then I finally put myself out to pasture, to live my ultimate dream to run around the world! This blog was written on the road while I struggled to find places to sleep and to recover from running an average of 43.3 kilometres or 27 miles per day for 1,165 road days. There were many nights I typed this blog on a smart phone, so fatigued my eyes closed. Many journalists and endurance athletes have referred to my world run as the most difficult endurance challenge ever attempted. During my expedition I rarely had any support vehicles, running mostly with a backpack. In the more desolate areas I pushed my gear, food and water in a cart which I called Nirvana, then I sent her on ahead to run with my backpack once again over altitudes of almost 5,000 metres in the Andes. I stayed in remote villages where many people had never seen a white person before. I literally met the most wonderful people of this world in their own backyard and share many of those amazing experiences in this blog. My run around the world took 4 years. There were no short cuts, I ran every single metre on the road while seeking out the most comprehensive route across 41 countries, 5 continents, I used 50 pair of running shoes and my final footstep of the run was exactly 50,000 kilometres, (almost 31,000 miles) I eventually finished this tongue in cheek named world jog where I started, at the finish line of my city marathon. I started my global run with the Dublin Marathon on October 25th 2010 and finished with the Dublin Marathon on October 27th 2014 at 3 05pm! Thank you for your support, I hope you can share my unique way of seeing the world, the ultimate endurance challenge! Read more...
