After reading Davie Bell's blog and giggling at his drama of turning up at the Highland Fling (53 mile trail race) without his trail shoes. Oh and turning up at last year's Great Scottish Run without his shorts, I wondered if anyone else has some comedy moments from racing and training?
My comedy moment (well, it's only funny now) happened during last year's Paris Marathon. As the temperatures hit 30 degrees as I was severely over-heating. At one of the water stops, I grabbed a bottle of water and proceeded to pour the contents all over me. Only to discover I was pouring a clear energy drink all over me. Yes, liquid sugar. Doh! The stewards were staring at me in total disbelief. I had to complete the remaining miles feeling like a real-life jelly baby.
