Well according to the local rag it seems I'm running in the Great Manchester Run - and for once perhaps one should believe what one reads in the paper. Anyway, even though this major piece of International News may have been eclipsed by a minor election it would not have been in a newspaper a year ago. This year has seen me go from a non-runner to a well erm... sort of runner. It has been a wonderful journey and I'm now more worried about where I'm going to park in Manchester tomorrow more than whether I will complete the 10K! Having had an injury free 9 months these last 4 weeks have have see all sort of IT band niggles but I doubt I shall feel any of them once the adreneline kicks in
I just want to thank everyone who has been so supportive and helpful on this forum and I have made many new friends on this site. I want to thank all those who have donanted to the charity I am running for as well - you are real stars
Paula Radcliffe has promised not to overtake me so my only competition now is Poppypug who I'm hoping to meet over by the Alzheimers Research UK plot in the Charity VIllage after the race for a photo opportunity as well as a cuppa and banter Any other C25Kers who are running, see if you can make it too.
Once again thank-you - this realy wouldn't have happened a year ago. XX
PS Good luck to Aliboo who is doing a slow run (called a walk), across the Isle of White for charity - go for it ma chere x
Right I'm off to charge up all the gizmo's, my gps watch, iPhone, bluetooth headphones, jetpack... :))
