Be Prepared

7 May 2011

I’m writing this on the train to Richmond, where we’re staying the night before the race. I still have the cold, my legs ache and I haven’t run a decent mile all week, but I’m carrying on as if none of that mattered, in the hope that it won’t (it will).

Whatever, in 15 hours the race will be underway and in 17 hours it will be over. I’m as prepared as it’s possible to be. I have vaseline, sticking plasters, tissues, jelly babies, foam bananas (secret weapon), real bananas, pasta for dinner and my race number.

Wish me luck!

    I am Michelle’s friend in Chislehurst who put me on to your blog, which is great by the way. Good luck for tomorrow, and I hope you are feeling better and that your cold miraculously disappears.

      Aw thanks Catriona! I sometimes forget anyone other than me reads this so I love a comment, and particularly a complimentary one. I need a new challenge now to bore people about… Xx
