So the time has come….it’s on Sunday. All the running has been done and I’m now just resting my legs. But like so much of the (well used saying) journey there’s a twist…….The weather.

For those of you who have been following these blogs you know the weather has been one of my biggest challenges to date, and it looks like that’s going to continue. Sunday’s temperature is forecasted to be up around 22 degrees in London that’s only a difference of 29 degrees from my coldest training run in February! How do you prepare for that! but what can I say, or do, other than shrug my shoulders and get on with it.

I’m really looking forward to Sunday now and I’m ready for the challenge. I’ve been told many times the crowd will get me round and I have several people coming to watch, so the pressure is on them.

For those that are interested below are some details on how you can follow me:

Race Number 36,865

London Marathon 2018 APP (see below)

So drinking water, to hydrate, and eating cake for energy, are the instructions that were given to me by my team and I’m doing both….especially the cake! And if you get the chance look out for me on Sunday, I’ll be one of those runners that’s getting passed by the person dressed as a Rhino.

Thanks again for your support for Child Rescue Nepal and I’ll let you know how I get on!

Oh, and if you wanted to know, I just want to do it under 4hrs 59min and 59 sec!
