Bupa London 10000



















Couldnt resist posting a picture of this bold contestant at the first London 10000 which held on Bank Holiday Monday who appeared in his birthday suit and some green body paint. Didnt go with my camera. It was a dismal race for me and I hope to do better in other upcoming races. Other Pictures from the race can be found HERE and HERE thanks to another runner who turned up with his DSLR.
The race was well organised though and the marshalls and those who turned up to cheer were great and extremely encouraging even though runners like me didnt seem to be doing much. I think there were bands at every KM also and they were wonderful. Will definitely run this race agian next year - even if only to exorcise my demons from this year.

  4. Really nice reading your blogs. Especially the bit about pay per post. Thanks for posting that kind of info. You know, if bloggers in Nigeria could just make a few hundred (thousand) dollars everymonth, blogging from Nigeria. Imagine the kind of difference it would have on that country.

  10. Kai! Paint him white down the middle and what do you have? Naija flag. Incredible Hulk must have been a Naija juju in his other life come to think of it.
    Funny enough , white guy doesn't even look naked.
    Will try that costume (or paint) tomorow when I go out for a run. (Only joking o!)
    Well don on race. No be competition. E no mata if yu no win. Yu are not Kenyan Like Obama and yu no go fit rig this one (as a proper Naija).
    Abeg, no mind me, I too talk

    Keep on running.
