    I am excited. This will be the third time I have done this and I love the event. I have trained hard for it this year and am looking forward to getting going on Sunday. I need to remember to keep it steady though. Last year I felt good, went off too quickly, was well up on my time by half way and at 30K but then you all know what happens next!!

    I know that Ross, Amanda and Steve are doing it as well, but which other bugs will be there?

    Good luck everyone,  remember it’s a flat course so I expect everyone to get a PB. I also hope none of you are staying in the same hotel as we did 2 years ago.

    The plan is a bug meet at the bag drop area after the event I think. I am aiming to meet Ross, Amanda and Steve if possible. All other bugs who want to meet that are doing the run, make themselves known

    Good luck everyone – I know that a massive amount of training and determination has gone into the prep.

    Everyone is banned from having that sudden burst of optimism after about 3 miles when you suddenly think “this [my planned pace] is really quite easy why don’t I speed up a bit….”  😉 Hope to see lots of bling afterwards.

    Drove up to my sisters this afternoon. Weather forecast looks good. Nerves kicking  in hoping for a PB but trying not to put pressure on. Just want to get started now.
