Not long now!!
Just 5 days to go until the Brighton Marathon and I can’t wait.
Ok, so training hasn’t been ideal over the last month but I did a good ten mile run on Sunday with a 7:30 average and have kept ticking over for the last two weeks with several 6k runs, so I am as fit as I can be. Luckily I can combine running with cycling so that has helped me keep good fitness too. And now I can’t wait!
I’m looking forward to the exhibition to pick up my number.
I’m looking forward to seeing friends in Brighton on Saturday.
I’m desperately excited to meet up with my brother-in-law at the start on Sunday morning.
I can’t wait to finally throw that old t-shirt over the barriers in the start line and get moving.
The thought of seeing my wife & kids and friends & family on my way round is giving me goosebumps.
And the prospect of crossing the finishing line and giving them a cuddle is bringing a tear to my eye.
The thought of being by the side of the course to cheer on my brother-in-law as he finishes nearly tops it all.
And then a beer (or two).
A long drive home (and maybe a snooze).
A glass of red wine and maybe a take-away.
A good nights sleep.
A hobble to school to drop off the kids
And a well earned day off work.
Anyway, it as just a quick entry to share the excitement and one last picture of these peas on my leg before I eat them next week!! Good luck to any marathoners with a few days to go. Remember why you’re doing all this. See you on the other side!
