PICS: This Man Ran The Dublin Marathon Dressed As The Eiffel Tower And We All Suitably Lost Our Minds
Running a marathon is hard. We know this already.
But running a marathon with one of the world's most prominent buildings on your head? Yeah, we imagine that's pretty tough.
But, not for this guy. Behold - Eiffel Tower-wearing-marathon-man (patent pending).
Some people were shocked, some were in awe, and some were truly baffled by the athlete's excursions...

But most were wildly impressed. And as if this story couldn’t already get any better, according to local news reports the runner is 70-year-old Frenchman, Michel Bach.
According to a friend he’s completed the Marathon Des Sables – an ultra-marathon in the Sahara Desert, known as the world's toughest race – 25 years IN A ROW.
Just to give you more of an idea of how fit this guy is (and to feel terribly bad for being out of breath on the stairs this morning).
But don't worry, he works hard but also plays hard too.
Vive la France!
