Story

I am just a regular mum and wife of 2 children and a third child - husband.  Having only done a couple of marathons and some fun running with friends I saw this very crazy challenge.  After following it for the last 2 years for some mad reason I felt inspired and thought I would enter.  I have felt sick and slightly hysterical since getting the call saying I had been accepted.  My running partner isn't going to be too happy with me, I am going to have leave her behind and do this without her.  She is a great companion and comes out with me on every run, no matter how long or short, cold, wet or hot and her tail never stops.  My running partner is my lovely, loyal working cocker Bess. I shall miss her, when I run without her it will be as if something is missing. I have persuaded my 12 year old to join me on some shorter runs on his bike but sadly my 16 year old has asked that I wake her when we get back! My life consists of school runs/clubs, cleaning the house and making sure everyone has a dinner on the table, lunch in their bag and shirt on the hanger. Oh yes, and now this silly challenge I have decided to do. Some nights I wake in a hot sweat having had nightmares of running forever, then reality hits and its not far from the truth and then I feel slightly panicky.

To everyone that is supporting me and helping me a big massive thank you.
