Don't shoot!

I've always told you to just shoot me if I ever decide to run a marathon, but.......

I'm doing a marathon on Sunday! Yay!

Don't shoot though, it's a relay, I'm not doing the whole thing. Ange from parkrun put out a request for volunteers to make up a team and I signed up! The Thames River Relay, from Virginia Water, down to Kingston (ending where my HM the other week started and finished, but the other direction).

I was doing the final section, but got an email this evening, can I do the first and the final sections! Yep, not a problem, I should have an hour or so in the middle to recuperate!

If I survive I'll let you know how we got on.

Edit to share the link...

And to say we have 12 people, which made 3 teams if 3 of us could run twice (for 2 different teams). If I'm running twice do you think I'd get 2 medals?

  • Good luck for your run, sure you'll do great and an hour should be enough to take on water and plenty of sugar for phase two :)

  • Best of luck! I hope you don't get another email saying that you'll need to run from your first stint to your second! ;-)

    Have fun and enjoy!

  • I might be waiting for y'all at the finish line! I'm not running it, but the end line at the Hawker Centre is really close to home and Turbo Tortoise is running the final leg too! Go team C25K! :)

  • Fabulous! That's just sealed my wardrobe choice then, my graduate t-shirt!

  • Brilliant!! You get the 2 best bits- the start and the finish. Have a wonderful time :)

  • Great - well done

  • Go Beads - sounds like a C25K meeting at the finish line!! So jealous of you all on my old childhood patch

  • Good luck Beads , & Turbo tortoise! sounds like a fab day out! go team c25k !!!!!!!!!:)

  • Great stuff! Hope you have a fab time

  • Beads, we have to meet - either at Hurst Park or at the Hawker Centre. I am running the final leg with one of the Sheen Shufflers teams (we have four). Should be a lot of fun.

  • That sounds fun! Tough but fun! I think a marathon is mental but part of it sounds much more do-able

    Good luck with it!
