Wishing you all very good luck and hope you all have fabulous days.
IF anyone would like to enter my competition and win a signed copy of my book Running on Empty: Diary of a Marathon Mum, alll you need to do is email me at: email@example.com and tell me what is the strangest thing you've seen while out running.
Failing that you could always go to You Tube and watch the little video I've made entitled Ten Things You Didn't Know About the Marathon
I will be running an online party for all marathon runners at;
http://RunningonEmptyLaunchParty.blogspot.com for the week leading up to FLM and will post more details later.
You are all most welcome to join in.
Finally, I wish you all the best of luck and hope I can be there with you next year!
Crikey I didn't realise so much went on behind the scenes vis a vis the charities. I ran in 2005 for a local children's charity who were very supportive. My target was £1250 but in the event I managed to raise £2300. I too found it a big strain though and much worse then training.
I've entered the ballot for next year but was thinking of going for a GB place for Cancer Research for a variety of personal reasons. However, was not very impressed by the organisation of the Race for Life I took part in in the summer and I did find them pushy. So maybe a more local charity would be better...
Still thinking about it!
PS I wrote a book about my experiences called Running on Empty:Diary of a Marathon Mum, and am donating a percentage of the profits to Tadworth Court Trust who I ran for. Anyone doing FLM for the first time and in need of inspiration do contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If I can do it anyone can!
