pedroscalls asks: Congratulations on a well deserved MoTM win. My question is if money and time were no object what route or race would you want to do? 

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Pedro top question sooooo many I guess having done enough marathons I'd love to qualify for Boston Marathon one day.

But I guess it would be Grand Union Canal Race or Western States 100 would be a great achievement I know people who have done it.
Valyrian Plastic asks: Well done, HOD. Why so serious?

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Ha Ha VP yes WHY ? Do want to know how I got these scars ....well. Those that know me no I ain't serious about many things and I am the JOKER ho ho ho ho
westmoors asks: Congratulations on MotM. Who would you most like to meet and why?

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Thanks mate excellent question well Fetchies I've met most lol (see stickerbook)

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Thanks maaaate. Well the clues in the name the HOD Glenn Hoddle great player ever to grace the field at White Hart Lane had everything and walked around like he owned the place and he did. Check out his many quality goals especially the one v Wolves.
DocMoye asks: Congrats on MOTM. You and your comments make me laugh, who makes you laugh not (necessarily on Fetch )?

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Thanks Doc I'm glad you noticed ;-).

On Fetch loads of people make me laugh Greg's training, BRCB, Jock, Foxy, Max, Johnny Blaze list is endless some funny people here. In the real world I love Billy Connolly, Micky Flanagan (I'm seeing him next month), Lee Mack, Monty Python and Peter Kay (sometimes). Not into this new age rubbish like Mighty Boosh.

Captain S asks: Congratulations on the MOTM award. With relation to your Fetch name, what is the hardest hilliest race you have ever done and would you do another one?

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Thanks mate. It's funny I was originally HOD from the mighty Glenn Hoddle then Gobi mentioned Hills of Death. I don't mind hilly races now and then Snowdon, Connemara but the hardest I've done was a fell race in Mortimer Forest HILL race took me 2 hours to do 10 miles. Would I do another of course 😄

RichHL asks: How the f**k did this happen? ;-)

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Thanks mate high praise indeed xxxx won't be long we ran up and a race track outside his new school tired me out quick. I have the endurance he's got the speed.

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Lol of course I only moved to be close to you ! and the cheaper housing and plus no one knew my chequered past have you noticed how the area has digressed since 2011. My Prediction for you is as follows Swim 1.24 Bike 6.26 Marathon 4.42 T1 10.02 T2 11.17 so I guessing 12.53 ;-). Either way you will beat my Austria time because I know how hard you've trained and I'll be so proud of ya. My A race is boring its going to be sub 3.30 at London/Boston UK/Salzburg again. Peace and love x
RFJ asks: Congrats, well deserved. Cant remember if you have any tattoos...? If you could design the perfect running tattoo for you what would it be and why?

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Thanks mate haven't seen you since we past each other 21 times running in the wrong direction PMSL. I think I would have one running to heaven with God saying well done my son. As running 'sometimes' feels heavenily but unlike you I don't think I'm going to get there ;-)
GlennR asks: Congratulations mate. Your choice: Arsenal get relegated or you qualify for Kona?

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Thanks mate tough tough question but Arsenal relegated and qualify for Kona on my own lol
Stiggers asks: Along the lines of RMO3B....1) Marathon or RonMan? 2) Huntingdon or Wimpole? 3) Hoddle or Gazza?

Angus Clydesdale asks: Cool, congratulations. What was your favourite race and why?

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Cheers AC I think my favourite race (apart from VLM ;-) ) was the Disney Marathon really surreal experience started at 0500 and dark got lighter and sunnier. A man singing the love boat at halfway, Toy soliders shooting at you mile 23 for walking and going through loads of countries at the end. Great experience.
RunningRonnie asks: Why the scary picture? Why would you want to scare us? Why?

Hills of Death (HOD) says: Because they all flooooooooat down here.
