I think I’ve been in denial about the fact that the Marathon is really nearly here. But today it all felt a little bit more real.
As most people, I was horrified to see the pictures from the Boston marathon finishing line. There truly are some evil people in the world.
This has only added to my nerves about Sunday, but I”m not going to let it get in my way. London will of course rise to the occasion and I’m sure that it will only serve to unite the runners even more.
I was supposed to travel to London to Excel (way out in the Docklands) to collect my running number but I was spared the task by a wonderful friend who offered to collect mine when she went to get hers. It wasn’t an entirely smooth process and she went way out of her way to help me, for which I’m really grateful.
So now it all feels a bit more real – even if I haven’t yet got my running number in my sticky hands. But I know it is there in London waiting for me to collect on Saturday. I’ve finally been reading through all the advice on the website so I know where I’m going. I was amused to see this notice:
So it’s nearly here and I think I’m as ready as I can be….
London, I’m coming for you.
