GOWAN MIKE AND BRIAN, YA MAD FIT B*ST*RDS!!!
**'UPDATED**They've been running non-stop for the last 26 hours, have blisters and Vaseline in unthinkable places, and now - more than ever - they need and deserve your support.
Over a marathon left for Mike Sheridan and Brian Maher today, but sure they've only ran four in the last day... Battling the cold, rain, dark, the aforementioned blisters, bouts of hypothermia, and having to endure running with Caroline Foran and Sarah Murphy for a good few miles during the night between Mountrath and Portlaoise, a very weary Mike said this morning he has every confidence that "we'll get there"... as if anyone thought otherwise.
Please support the lads for their last stretch by texting DONATE to 57252 or donating online at challenge126.com (where you can also track their progress). Follow #Challenge126 on Twitter for updates on when they'll arrive in Dublin's Grafton Street - at the moment, we're now looking at an ETA of 10pm. A quick trip to Naas hospital had to be accommodated. They're both OK now though and back on the road.
If you see them on the road (they're running the old Dublin Road, R445), they've just passed the Curragh), please bip your horns, roar "GOWAN MIKE AND BRIAN, YA MAD FIT B*ST*RDs!!!", anything that will help them home after this beyond arduous feat for Special Olympics Ireland.

Go Challenge 126!!
