British urban star Mike Skinner is feeling the pressure in advance of the New York Marathon - even though he originally dismissed the run saying it "can't be that hard". The FIT BUT YOU KNOW IT MC was lured into taking part after noticing the apparent ease with which even "people dressed as milk cartons" managed to complete the gruelling 26-mile (48-kilometre) course. But Skinner has since confided on his blog that he is less than confident. "I'm f**king sh**ting myself. Three weeks (05NOV06) until the great race to commemorate the bloke running all that way in ancient Greece with the wounds. Wish me luck."
