Ann Knox - definitely wear your name (or something people can shout out) on your shirt/vest. It's great getting generic cheering from the crowd but so much more inspiring when people are shouting out specifically for you.
I was slightly concerned earlier in the week as so many people I know have been ill and I have been feeling under the weather also. I feel slightly better now however commuting by train/tube into London isn't exactly helping my anxiety about not getting ill!
I will hopefully get a short run in tomorrow around Greenwich Park at lunch time then I'll be resting up until the big day (and making sure I use my foam roller!)
Hi all, it's been a while since I've checked in. I'm getting excited about race day but given my training's taken a massive dip recently due to a new job and illness I've decided to forget about a PB time and enjoy the day. With that in mind I've just ordered another wig to keep up the tradition!
The weather has changed massively this week and looks like we're going to be lucky to have the weather tomorrow rather than what's to come a day or two later! A tail wind over the b!tches will be helpful too, and I can't imagine the stretch 10-12 miles can be any worse than last year!
I was certain I'd be wearing trail shoes given the rain that was forecast earlier in the week however I'm going to take both runners and trails and see what it's like when I get there. As Ed McK said, best not to stress too much about it, but I just won't be able to help myself in the lead up to the race! It's just one of those things!
