Just me and 80,000 other runners over a 14km course featuring a horrifically scary hill.
I went for my normal Tuesday run this evening and it was pretty difficult – unseasonably hot, I was low on fuel and all I could think of the entire route was how mad I am to assume I can run 14km.
Utterly ridiculous thinking because there are still 137 days to go! This surely is more than ample time to work up to that distance and, if on the day I feel it is too much, I can always walk part-way!
I need to shake off my fear and use the race as the goal it was intended to be.
