Loved your race reports Mr P & DS2, brilliant commentaries of your race days and who would have thought that there would have been a birthday express train for you DS2.
Malcs your write up was as ever, excellent and witty…do Runners World towers have an opening for you? Be great to get a bit of fresh new writing talent in there.
Chickadee – My friend in Boston is saying they have had a few hoaxes already this week re suspicious packages…I suppose it is to be expected and it wont be the last I am sure but I am banking on the fact the Americans will not let anything happen this year, although we as competitors might get a tad inconvenienced. Have a great race over there…do I recall this is the start of some mad epic cross America trip for you?
I am flying out Friday evening, I am excited but I am also apprehensive. As I posted before, since Brighton and my injury I have reassessed my goals and Goal A is to finish, goal B is 3.50 which would still be a PB for me. Whilst the calf has improved and the twisted pelvis, is well, less twisted, I would have preferred a better build up to the race of my life and there is no doubt it will affect my performance. But I will leave nothing on the road and the time I come back with will be the best of my ability and I will have given it everything.
Better start packing this evening….
