I HAVE DONE IT!!!!
WOWOWO the most incredible experiance i will never ever forget!
Completed in 5.17, rather a lot longer than I hoped but never the less I completed it! My hips were the real hold back and the pain was pretty bad.
Going over Tower Bridge was AMAZING, the crowds! Infact the crowds throughout the course were amazing. Shouting your name out all along thr route!
And the final 385 yards, what a last part to run, suddenly you get this overwhelming urge and I was overwhelmed with emotion. Going through.. I really can't put it into words.. magical and something I really will not forget! Tears of joy/ exhaustion/pain and many other things.
Featured in The Oxford Mail on Monday 27th April!

Yesterday( Thursday) I went to London to collect my racing number 42344. Its all happenng and soon Sunday will be here"!
I feel I should be running more at the moment but I realise now is the time when it all slows down in readiness for the big day on Sunday!
Training has been amazing,long runs have been taking place as you can imagine. It really is a matter of days now not months.
The very thought just fills me with the hugest of smiles, I cannot tell you. What with most beautiful weather we have at the moment I couldnt be on better form! Although I really do not think iwant it as warm as this!! Nor do i want it to be raining.. If anyone can nudge the clouds a little word saying clear, sunny but cool that would be ideal I would be very grateful!!
I really do hope as many people as possible are able to make it on the day.
Look out for me My number is 42344!
20 miles completed on 11/4/09 = great run!
18 miles on Sat 18/4/09
Wow I never really thought I would ever get a place for this, but I have been very lucky and this year I have!
I am running for SCCWID which is one of the Childrens Charities for Oxford Radcliffe Hospital Charitable Funds, many of you will know what SCCWID means and for those who don't its: Sophies Campaign For The Children's Ward With Interesting Things To DO
