Just to See if I Can

…I can’t.

As promised, I have now taken part in the World Coal Carrying Contest. However, after carrying my 50kg ¾ of the way to the 1km finish line, I dropped one of the two weights and attracted the attention of the gym staff.

Needless to say they weren’t happy with me doing it in the first place, so they made me stop immediately.

I explained it was for charity but got the usual speech about “health and safety”. Unfortunately they wouldn’t let me continue even for the last quarter of a kilometre.

Nevertheless, I’m still willing to bet that I’m the only person ever to have taken part in the race remotely and on a treadmill, in prison no less!
