Hi Mel!

I think Ive just walked round in circles today pinching myself.....!!...amazing support and kind words from you all....just pitted with sadness that Martin isnt here to share it, but I think he had a major part in the whole thing...!!....he was always a bit of a bugger for getting his own way!!!.......

Not convinced a run would be benificial tonight, I think I may just enjoy the wine while I can...... its all going to change on Monday!!!!!!

Oscarr- thank you for your extra kind words...l know they came from the heart and they mean a lot....I totally understand the need for the focus......choices...? running or cake and alcohol???....

Sam - thank you so much for this amazing opportunity.....I am so excited I just cant put it into words!!!!......Cant wait to get started!!.....

Seren nos - no worries on juggling the work commitments....couldn't have a better supportive team behind me!!!.....( and 'work' is situated in the heart of the south downs.... so ideal for running especially after a tough shift!!) 

Huge thank yous to everyone!!!.....I will  share my smiles and tears with you the whole way as I'm not naive enough to thinks its all going to be wonderful all the time!!!.....

Hi Mel, congratulations! I'm sure your as happy and excited as me!

Hey Sam - thanks. My next big adventure is to do the 69 mile Wall race in June with Sleepy Bear over 2 days. Some of us from last years boot camp are planning to meet at some races next year - quite a few doing a weekend trip to do the Coniston 14 in March. I plan to have another go at a sub 4 in Abingdon next year as well.

Hi mel, congratulations on getting through. I'm really looking forward to following your training in order to pick up some tips as we had the same target time. I'd also be interested to hear how you fit your training around being a mum and a full time job. Also, don't forget to include details of the fun and girly stuff, like what is your new kit like to run in and what kit you picked out at the weekend!!

Good. That lets me out of contributing my hard earned wages to fund you swanning about in Paris. Good luck and very proud of you. Dad x
