I admit it. I am more nervous than I ever have been before. I am about to do the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I don't think I have ever given myself such a challenge before. I am still not sure I can do this, I am not sure my body will hold up, or my spirits - not for 26.2 miles.
I am going to try and name a mile after people in my life so that I have to run every single one of the twenty six for that person (and therefore cannot let them down). Two boys in my class baggsied miles one and two, I had to stop the other kids from adding to it otherwise I would be running 29 just for them! Mile three will be for the rest of the class. The only other miles I have assigned people to are mile 26 (I'm running that one for me) and the last 385 yards? They are for Su, without whom I would still be on the couch.
