43 days until the Edinburgh marathon and I’m scared
Its about pain.
I like to exercise and all that but a marathon? How the heck do I make these decisions? I am running in the Edinburgh Marathon this year and I am totally unprepared. I mean, I run, I have an active job, I cycle, I walk everywhere. But a marathon. Even the name makes me think of Mount Olympus and Achilles. Greek god/ athlete I am not.
Every little helps.
You can follow my progress on my twitter page where I will be updating my training, fundraising progress and my general pain for all to see. There are about another 140 runners for Help the Hospices. We hope to really make a difference through our personal suffering and our generous donations.
26.2 miles is a long, painful way to run but helping the ones you love when they are ill is a real test of endurance. I hope we can add just a little comfort and support to their day.
Thanks for reading and give generously at my JustGiving page.
