the marathon is easy: no lions...

Six Maasai warriors from Tanzania ran the London Marathon this weekend, dressed in their traditional red robes and shod in car tyre shoes. Here's the blog they kept about their experiences in the UK.

Our elders told us we can do the marathon because we have been running all over, killing a lion and herding cattle. I sometimes run for two or three days with my cattle, and I have to protect them from lions. Heathrow was very busy and it was difficult to walk on the floor because some of it moved. You're walking along and the next moment it's whooosh! It's difficult to get on and off but very good when you're on.
I wonder where their collapse point is.
