One in 2001- i sprained an ankle a few weeks before and drove everyone mad about whether i would make it or not/etc.
The in 2003 i had all the usual injuries- shin splints/ knee pain/ achilles/etc etc and further drove everyone mad again- I managed it but had a virus and a fever and v stupidly ran and got round in a painful 4h 30 mins - one hour down on planned time.
This year i have my own place- no targets to raise- and touch wood no injuries so far . I plan to enjoy the day more this time- and remeber to wave at the Queen as i run by....
Try not to get too obsessed/etc,, and enjoy- but then again not wasy to do !
Please dont run under someone else`s number. Not allowed and actually i feel dangerous re medical side of things.etc if something goes wrong/ Thousands of people want a place- But thats the FLM im afraid. keep applying and hope to get lucky !
