    And you should sponsor him.

    I’m running the London marathon in April to raise £3000 for charity. Any and all donations welcome. I’ve never done anything like this before, but training is going OK at the moment so I’m quite confident.

    I know times are hard and the situation is grim, but I’ll bet everyone here can spare either a pound or a pound a mile or maybe even a mound of pounds:

    ^Me too.

    What happened to the stereotypical view that as Dwarf fans we are all fat bastards and can’t run?

    And there was me thinking he was racing someone in a giant Snickers bar outfit.

    You have to sponsor in order to make a costume suggestion.

    Hold on, wait a minute. Are you trying to tell us we need to sponsor you into order to make a costume suggestion?

    Oh come on, he’ll have been preparing for a ninety days and ninety nights. Don’t you want to see the result?

    Unfortunately it doesn’t look like these will be available in time for the marathon:

    Actually looking at the other costumes on the site I doubt they’d survive a moderately warm fancy dress party nevermind 26 miles.

    It’s tomorrow & I’m more than a little nervous about it. Thank you to those of you that have sponsored me & the link is in the first post for those that haven’t. Sorry I haven’t been about much but between training & the death of my laptop I’ve been busy.
