Running Stars!!

I mentioned in my last post that I was in a photo shoot, now I’m not about to turn all Model on you but I do need to boast a little considering the shoot was with none other than Bruce Fordyce!!!

For those of you who don’t know why this is such a big deal, Bruce won the Comrades marathon 9 times, 8 of which were consecutive – need I say more…

Of course I wasn’t looking my best having just finished running 56km and with no make-up or wardrobe crew on hand I just had to make do with my hat-hair and salt encrusted face.

The shoot was for LIFE magazine and the article is about marathons, look out for it!!

    Hahahaha, Brian I’ve seen Bruce run – it’s uncomfortable but steady and he buries many people, so your fantasy might just become a reality 😉

    Bruce Fordyce! Wow – I don’t get to drop many names like that. That’s a pretty cool meeting.

    I keep having this weird recurring fantasy that Fordyce runs with Team Flash for part of the 2010 Comrades. Then he gives us that handshake and buries us on the course – just as he did when he was dominating the competition in the 80s…
