"How many truly remarkable things have you done in your life? If the answer is not many, or even none, then maybe it's time to run a marathon." Andrew Hamilton. ... I decided to take on a marathon challenge - to make a hundred metres of braid with a dash running through it. Time trials confirmed it was feasible and research into training methods used for sprinters enabled me to put together a Personal Training Program to follow and a chart to record my progress. Alongside the creation of the braid, a year and a day in the making, regular bulletins and progress reports were released written as though I were an athlete training to compete in the 100 metres dash. The finished piece (the legacy) is the braid itself with an accompanying book and DVD that tracks the event from conception to conclusion.
