I did it!

Just a quick update – I finished the half marathon at the Niagara Falls International Marathon today dressed in a grape costume in 1 hour 19 minutes and 13 seconds.

That’s a fast enough time to set a new Guinness World Record for fastest half marathon dressed as fruit – unofficially. Now I need to submit the evidence for verification in order to make it official.

More to come – got to run.

Tomorrow is the big day

In just over 12 hours I’m going for it! Tomorrow is Oct 15, the big day, the day I challenge the Guinness World Record for fastest half marathon dressed as a fruit. I’m wearing a grape costume. 

I’ve got a good feeling something special is going to happen tomorrow. I’ve worked hard all summer. It’s going to be fun!

I’ll let you know how it goes. Wishing all the other runners chasing their goals this weekend in Niagara Falls (and elsewhere) that they good times out there and the races they’ve been preparing for. 

See you at the start line! Gotta run.

My first GoPro running video


This is what I look like when I run.

I need to provide video evidence of of run in a grape costume during my Guinness World Record attempt. So, I was testing out the GoPro that’s going capture every glorious minute of my half marathon.

I put the thing on a hand grip and set out for a 13k easy run. Nice to share some views from the Welland Canal Path – one of my favourite routes.

That’s it for now. Gotta run.
