“Are you all packed and ready for the weekend?”
“Of course not.”
In just under 36 hours, I will be toeing the line in… um… er… Oxfordshire somewhere, ready to run 100km along the Ridgeway to Avebury.
Training has gone as well as I could have hoped given the extremely sorry state that I was in after Thames Path 85, and it’s been really nice (I know, I know, there has to be a better word than that) to share some of that training and preparation with the incredible women on the @RTTS100 team.
There have been a few hiccoughs along the way, namely tripping over a tree root and straining an intercostal muscle (who needs to breathe anyway?), the after effects of over-indulging at a family wedding (drink this bleach and then punch yourself in the abdomen a few times), and dropping a shelf on my toe (because taperchondria isn’t stressful enough).
But, all in all, I feel ready.
Which probably means that it’s time to go and pack.
All the best!!!! Have fun x
Thank you 🙂
Don’t forget your TNF sun visor. Go babe of steel!
*adds TNF visor to packing list*
There’s a few extra miles, right there! Go get ’em!
Go and be magnificent.
I think that might have to be my race mantra.
We wipes, pack them, I’d say good luck but you won’t need it, I’d say enjoy, but it sounds too long to enjoy. X
good luck!! you will be awesome xx
Enjoy it, and keep cool xx
Taperchondria – exactly how many ways can you pre-injure yourself before an event? Ouch!!
Good luck. Have a laugh/cry/scream out in the countryside. Enjoy the scenery and have a fabulous time.
Eeeeek!!! Good luck!! You’re going to be amazing!! Can’t wait to hear how you get on!!
I love the way you mentioning bleach results in a Harpic advert in your blog 😀
Have a great day – it’s going to be quite an experience and a lovely route!
