    I predict that something will happen somewhere around his halfway mark (morning dew drops, bird poo, too many cars, too few cars, people waving hello, gravy, etc) that will cause him to call it off! My bet is no.

    I say he will hail an Uber at mile 35. So no!

    Never sign up for something you can’t do …… so yes, he not only should complete it, but should suffer ridicule if he doesn’t.
