Well somebody is pleased to have a new fleece!
I entered the London Marathon ballot on a whim not expecting to get a place and being a little worried recently what I’d do if I actually did get a place! Fortunately today I got the ‘Dear John’ response and the commiseration fleece so no worries there.
I was actually disappointed for a few hours this afternoon, especially getting caught up in the hype and excitement on twitter when a few people heard earlier on that they had places. I even researched other possible marathons in 2012 such as the new Milton Keynes Marathon.
However common sense has set in, having asked myself, ‘Do you really want to run 26.2 miles next spring?’ Erm.. Not really! I’m not even half marathon fit at the moment after injury! All sorted. I am going to concentrate on rebuilding my fitness and set myself a few goals to improve my 5K, 10K and HM times by running a few more of these races in 2012.
I always did say that I would run a marathon when I was very very old and therefore could have the excuse of stopping for a cuppa tea en route!
