Just thought I would say thanks to all the organisers of this marathon, myself and my buddy Neil are very much looking forward to coming down from Gloucester on Saturday to be tortured on your Dorset trails. Weathers looking good at the mo which is a bonus !
read a book called 'Born to Run' its truly inspirational. I run because I love to get outside and run - not for keep fit, not for the health benefits and I don't care what anyone thinks about me walking up the hills. Running makes me feel good, don't know why maybe because its a bit primal. I have thrown my marathon plan in the bin because its for young pups hell bent on macho time dominance who have not got 42 year old legs scarred with sports injuries. Lets get our daps on and get muddy dude ! On a separate issue my thoughts are with the Boston Marathon runners and there families - I can only begin to imagine what those poor people have been through.
Are there any other rubbish runners like myself entering this marathon (please let there be !) Just had two weeks rest because my bandy, judo and rugnby battered knees keep swelling up every time I increase my mileage. Anybody else out there on the scrap heap and just looking for a plod round rather than a PB ? Starting to worry I might be the only lame donkey
