Creative cheering for the marathon.
These guys were dressed, and behaving, differently each time we passed them.
... and each time I passed "iliketoast" and "ihatetoast" I detoured to say hello. I doubt this accounts for the whole 18 minutes and 19 seconds I lost. But it may have, even the best of marathons turns into a time warp (with optional hallucinations around Kings Avenue underpass).

The photos below of Charlie were taken by Strewth. The photo of Gary above was as well. Strewth is the best photographer! The photos of ihatetoast and iliketoast were borrowed from "Toast and Stuff" where more can be found.
