I've just been watching the build up to the London Marathon, which is happening here in the UK today, and saw an interview with a lady called Susie Hewer. She is going to run the marathon whilst knitting! And she's trying to get the record for the "Longest Scarf Knitted Whilst Running a Marathon".

Here's her chairty site --> http://www.justgiving.com/extremeredhead

And blog --> http://www.extremeknittingredhead.blogspot.com/

I hope she makes it around ok!! :cheering:

Wow! That has to be hard to do! I'd have to concentrate on putting one foot in front of the other and not tripping. :doh: :roflhard: Good for her! :cheering:

I knit and walk but I've never tried to knit and run. I hope she doesn't trip!!!

I have thought about bring my knitting with me when I workout. I could probably knit on the treadmill.

:muah: :hug:

For those of you knitting and walking/running have you seen this (http://www.knittinghelp.com/dynamic/php/store/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=20)?
It's in the KH store here..I think Amy (forum owner) uses one.

Im always in awe of people who do the marathon anyway, but to do it knitting is impressive. i wonder how she got on.

I spent saturday at a karate tournament, i wasnt due to compete till 17:00 but had been there since 8:00. so what did i do, i sat there cheering people on all day and knitted away. Its been decided that i need to staart knitting us GKR (our club) scraves and hats for winter tournaments! - knitting and sport do mix!!
