Passed by a pusher and propelling runner for the second time in my life yesterday. Couldn't keep up.

I had it happen at a parkrun earlier this year though the guy did end up winning in a <19 time. Probably could have kept up with him given he finished only 8sec in front but I couldn't be bothered.

We bought a speedy pram with 20 inch wheels and James has been training.

I think the world record for the pram marathon is something like 2.30. A age-related balance to be struck here between minimising the weight of the occupant and maximising the probability that the occupant will be willing to stay there for the requisite time.

@invis was it an E-Pusher

James is a good runner but i think a sub 2.30 pram marathon might be pushing it.

The pram is actually helpful on flats and slight downhills.

jayne I'm not sure if that was an intentional pun or not.
