Luxor International Marathon.

Post by Who2 » Fri Jan 12, 2018 7:54 am

Just informed it's on today.
Ascended the roof only to see 2 'tail-end Charlies.
Another well publicised event slipped under the radar..... 8)

Getting earlier in the month each year. Soon they will be running it at the end of December!

Don't tell me they poison the strays to "protect" the runners?? Or am I misreading your post?

No your not misunderstanding Newcastle there were dead dogs all over the place last time it was held. Now that may be a co-incidence :o

I hope it's a coincidence.

The idea of the Marathon organisers ( as opposed to local residents with a 'dog issue') deliberately killing dogs for a one-off event is appalling.

Poisoning dogs as a remedy for their social nuisance is bad enough but...... :(

You have obviously never been attacked by a pack of dogs.
Nick was once he got bit a few times, the dogs survived.... 8)

Those two big geezers sitting on the other side of the road don't look too impressed.

The East Bank marathon is this Friday, i believe....... although rumours that Dusak is participating may be exaggerated.

Unfortunately do to a preventable workplace accident, but wasn't, old Dusak's legs, back, one foot and head have been temporally decommissioned from physical use. :( Otherwise I would have taken the lead from the onset.
Life is your's to do with as you wish- do not let other's try to control it for you. Count Dusak- 1345.
