Dave Clamp

Happy Birthday Mum!

November 23, 2010

I am sure everybody who has been following this site would like to join Dave in wishing his Mum a very Happy 80th Birthday today!

By the way Dave is going pretty well today.  He was out on the track and on the go at 05.00 hrs and apart from a couple of loo breaks, pit stops for food and a cat nap he has kept moving and has reached 182 laps out of 223.  It is fairly hot but not as bad as yesterday.

Antal Voneki is chasing in 3rd place and Sergio Cordeiro is fast catching him in fourth.  Dave is well-informed and experienced at this level and is ensuring he keeps trying to stay sufficiently ahead.  He is on his 9th Marathon and fighting the pain in his foot really well.

    Happy Birthday Grandma! I love how we were told no one was to mention the number and Dave manages to drop it in in during his 9th marathon! Guess you are (in competition with dad) the furthest away hence the bravest to do it! :)

    Everyone at school sends you lots of luck and good wishes, lots have been following!
