It has been rumoured that once-fit Cape Town runner Jason Elley is thinking of competing in the 2Oceans Half Marathon this year. It is reported that he is in a general state of dissarray ath the moment, this being compounded by his resounding loss in the Cojones Squash Match last Night in Rondebosch.
Many of the fans are calling for him to retire from the sport of professional road running, stating that he is past it and a sub 90 time is well out of his reach. He underwent surgery on a troubled foot late last year but all reports suggest that he had a satisfactory recovery and that this should not interfere in any way with his ability to run.
Some of his rivals were interviewed and were unanimous in their views of the fallen runner. "He has no chance of beating me, I'll leave him in my dust." said Neil Quayle, while Barratt had this to say, "Jason Elley is a JOKE! He is past it. Dont irritate me with questions about that fool."
So, now the only question remains is, Will Jason Elley silence his critics and attempt to regain some pride? Or will he sulk away from the challenge and remain lost to the running world.
