Six billion dollar IT man(ager)

A career in IT is not generally conducive to an active lifestyle – outside of those late night Wii-bashing sessions. However, the Metro newspaper reported on one IT manager who has bucked the trend like no other by completing – gulp – 446 marathons.

Obviously this wasn’t all in one go, as if it was, IT manager Steve Edwards from Gloucester would be a mass of protoplasm by now. He once ran 87 marathons in a year even though doctors recommend two or three.

“I’m not too strict – I like my junk food and happily tuck into curry and pizzas,” he told the paper as he continued his journey on foot to Las Vegas to wish Bill Gates goodbye.
