After only my second time of applying through the ballot, it seems someone up there really loves me, and wants me to run.
And I am slightly euphoric at the thought of being a part of this world famous event.
I know that in my current state of mind, getting out and exercising can only be a good thing. And the sooner I start, the sooner I can start to feel able. I have now walked 26.2 miles twice. I know I have the capacity to do that much. It’s the running bit I am more concerned about. But I am going to throw myself into this, and am raising what I can for http://www.sane.org.uk/
It seems logical to talk about this as it happens. The ups and downs, the moods, the happy thoughts, the anxiety, and so on so I will keep you posted on how training for a marathon impacts and interacts with my mental and physical well being.
