This arrived in the post last week, earlier than expected so it was a bit of a surprise. Last year I was quite relieved to not get a place in the ballot, this year I was disappointed. Lots of friends have said to go for a charity place, but I do have doubts about my ability to raise £2,000 as well as doing all the training. Hubs definitely doesn’t want me to take a charity place, as he thinks that most of the £2k will end up coming out of our bank account! We talked it over and I am considering doing Edinburgh instead. There are lots of good reasons to do this;
1 it’s right at the beginning of May half term so I already have the week after booked off as annual leave for recovery!
2 I can still raise money for charity but without the pressure of the target.
3 It’s a month later than London which will compensate for the slip in my training plan this month.
Its been a busy month both work wise and socially, which along with my little health/anxiety blip has been bad for the running schedule. As I write this I am in a hotel room in Atlanta whilst my luggage with my running kit is presumed to be in Kansas City. I’m so grateful for the complimentary toiletries!!!!
im supposed to be attending a conference in KC but with 90 minutes allowed to get through immigration and get a connecting flight at Atlanta we missed it by 2 minutes. We went standby for a couple of flights but didn’t get on, so we have re booked for Sunday am and found somewhere to stay. So now I have a day off ( and no kit!) I had planned to run tomorrow pm where there is a gap in the conference so we will see how it goes.
Will I get there in time for the conference?
will I get any running in ( a treadmill is ok with me)
Will I be re-United with my possessions? ( and my iPhone charger)
Will I get home in time to fly back for my holiday with the family?
da dah dah! Cliffhanger!
hopefully a positive update will follow in a couple of days😃
