Marathon runner poos ar two-mile mark – Paula Radcliffe and Gary Lineker might nod
ANORAK spots Kelly James Ervin, of Devonshire Drive, Salisbury, Maryland. The Wicomico Bureau of Investigation spots him, too. The WBI has been called in by the people of Deer Harbour and Elk Creek to discover the source of human poo found on the area’s pavements.
Says Terry Webster of Salisbury:
“Three of my friends, we walk every morning and we started seeing it. It’s been a couple years now… The toilet paper was the key.”
Ervin says at around 4am every day he goes for a run, during which he often needs the toilet. A report states that Ervin told the WBI:
“After running approximately two miles, Kelly (Ervin) advised that he has to have a bowel movement and brings toilet paper with him on his run…Kelly (Ervin) advised that he defecates wherever his two mile mark is.”
The report adds that Ervin “runs with a group of runners from the area and they also defecate at a certain point in their run.”
When you have to go, you have to go. Just a bit off to use your turd as marker. Would a cricket bowler do the same thing, using a poo to mark the start of his run-up?
We are minded of the above photo of Team GB legend Paula Radcliffe at the London Marathon and of Gary Lineker in the World Cup.
Sporting events are a cavalcade of poo and wee.
