It would be stretching the truth to say yes. I just work on race day in enquiries pre race and I work on the finish line post race. BTR Liverpool have VIP facilities so I get to schmooze with dignitaries and invited guests which is nice but yesterday I was so busy I didn't even look up to acknowledge anyone never mind mixing with the guests!
I absolutely love it though. There is nowhere else I would rather be on race day. The arthritis is very advanced. I've apparently been suffering from it for decades. It's not because of running (so don't anyone be put off by that)!
I do need new knees but I'm keeping mobile with physio, exercise (mostly cycling) and a positive attitude. I'm 43. I'm not quite ready for the scrapheap just yet!
I do remember Dublin. It was my favourite ever marathon because you made it so special! I remember being at the breakfast run watching people riverdancing in a nightclub thinking 'well this is the most random it gets for 8am when you've just landed in a country'!!!
Everyone is well chez LB. The eldest mini is learning to DRIVE!!!
Hope you're well mummy. You'll always be the biggest influence on me running wise.
