Only 5 sleeps to go….
Today I went up to the London Marathon Expo to register, and it was brilliant! As I entered the Expo, the marathon theme music was playing and straight away my heart beat quickened and I got so excited (and a little emotional too!) Registration was easy and straight forward, and as I entered the expo, the legend that is Haile Gebrselassie was on the adidas boost stage.
Haile was very amusing to listen too, telling everyone to enjoy their run, and if you take 6 hours, you take 6 hours! He also said that’s not too far behind me!!
I was lucky enough to meet up with some of the other MND runners – it’s been so good having their support throughout the whole training process! There were so many things that I could have bought, and probably signed up to hundreds more events, but luckily I was sensible!
I managed to meet Michael Owen towards the end of the day, and that really made my day! I now wish that I had trained harder so that I was aiming for a 3:45 time. I’m sure I would be able to run along way if I was following him!
There were lots of opportunities to leave messages around the expo, and I ensured that #TeamMND and #MNDA were left visible to as many people as possible!!!
When I started this post I was £45 short of raising £3000 for Motor Neurone Disease, but during this post a lovely person donated £45!! I am so pleased to have raised this much money, but still there is no cure, so if you want to donate please do so here.
I have a super talented Niece too, and on Tuesday she did my nails for me! Take a look at how cool these are.
Thank you Tia, I love them!
