Madness!!!

Holy CRAP!!!!!

I've just done something epic-ally stupid.  I've just entered for this.  Paid and confirmed.

My sanity has officially left the building.

I'm not sure what I was thinking, but ever since I spectated the Bristol Half a couple of weekends ago - the one that I thought I might do then utterly chickened out of - I've been regretting not doing it.  All those people had such a sense of achievement on their faces.  And bling round their necks that they'd well and truly earned.  And as much as I'm terrified by the idea of trying to run 13.1 miles (holy crap, holy crap, that's a reeeeeeeally long way!!!), I'm also terrified of not trying.

Before I started all this, I thought I'd never be able to run properly.  I longed to be able to do a 5k - my holy grail that I aimed for whistfully when I first started plodding around the streets under the cover of darkness.  I never ever thought I'd manage a 10k - that was just stupid.  And here I am - signed up to attempt 21.1k in just under 6 months time.

You've come a long way, baby.

You are going to have the time of your life!! Halfs are my favourite!! And six months is ample, ample time to get ready. You're going to have a blast xxx
