I've just done my secret squirrel entry for next year!
I got an email saying they are phasing out the guarenteed race entry after 5 rejections but that as I have two rejections I will be able to carry on and get priority entry into the ballot. So I've just done it which means I don't have to go through the stress of last year trying to get into the site!
Great to hear all your stories..I am still feeling rubbish and envious at your achievements but really chuffed that you all seemed to have an enjoyable , all be it painful, time! When I am better I vow that I will run the distance in my local area and get my husband and kids to make me a goody bag and medal!
Thanks for all your nice words. Definitely not running as feeling awful today which is grim but in a weird way a blessing as I know now that I couldn't run it at all..rather than when I was just feeling off colour and could of given it ago.some sort of twisted logic in there I think! Hope you all have a fab time and say hello to Ben Fogle for me who I believe is starting the race
