a running partner helps me greatly, I know the feeling of loosing motivation but I find when im with somebody else im fine. Its actually getting out the house in the first place which is the hard thing once im running I feel great and so glad afterwards
we are actually staying in co. durham so a little out the area because we plan on making a weekend of it. think the plan will be to travel up nice and early, find somewhere for the car then the family can leave me and try and jump on the metro to south shields, does that sound ok?
I dont mind sitting in traffic after the race im not too bothered about that bit, im staying over and traveling back on the monday anyway. there must be a route to south shields that isnt blocked off even if its a little out the way. im hoping to get dropped off for at least 9am so that should give them at least 3-4 hours to find a way through to the finish
I think what I am most likely to do is get dropped off at the bus stop at haymarket and me walking to the start then my family can stop in the car and make their way straight over to south shields for the finish, I would imagine they could find parking somewhere if they are early enough and just wait for me there to finish
