Just correct that for you....
"I WILL be a bit emotional when I finish"
I don't know hardly anyone who hasn't had to fight to control their emotions on the finish line of their first (and in quite a few cases, subsequent) IMs.... and I know quite a few who have failed to control them spectacularly too!
Oh dear. At least that will make me feel better if I have a total meltdown . Definitely something alkofrolic afterwards - bubbles or rum or beer. I'm not fussy. I've instructed my mates to make sure that a can of bitter is ready for me to sip on the run. Find it so refreshing after all the sweet stuff.
