Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. With Max Cliffwolf on leave for personal reasons, I have been given the fun and prestigious position of temporary comedy-satire sports marketing guru @ Greenygrey. I started the campaign off in Spain this year, which hasn’t had much time for greenygrey, what with its yellowyblue landscape and yellowyred flag.
Barcelona Marathon goes Greenygrey
To begin my cunningly clever campaign I brought out our very own Yellowstone geyser geezer, Old Faithful, Marc Latham. Kitting him out in greenygrey, I sent him off on a 26.2mile/42km jog around Barcelona for their marathon 2013.
While Marc didn’t hit the headlines, or finish in his fastest time, putting a positive spin on it he did run for the longest amount of time in his career, finishing in 4 hours, 27 minutes and 50 seconds.
Barcelona 2013 became the fourth in Marc’s post-first-marathon-in-2004 ambition to run a marathon every three years until he’s 50 in 2016. So, one more marathon to go, all being well in three years.
There are photos of Marc Latham running in the Barcelona Marathon 2013 available at Marathon Photos and a video at MySports. Marc was number 9269. Here’s the first photo, of Marc crossing the line (he says he didn’t feel as tired and slow as he looked in some of the photos and videos!):
