gulp....

kit packed. an obscene amount of food is bagged up. i've even had a hair cut. so, about as prepared as i usually am for these things. saw the physio again on tuesday, who's given me further stretches and strengthening exercises to do. she understands why i need to run on saturday and, i quote, "it will be make or break".

unfortunately jane's a bit poorly so i'll be going up on my own. at least i wont be jealous about her peak baggin' without me. but it does mean a slight logistical hitch on the return journey. oh well, that's the least of my concerns.

despite this i'm starting to get really excited. whatever happens it's gonna be fun, i get to visit scotland, have some more audio book and i'll get to meet some more virtual buddies. i hope everyone else has a good run. i'm going to take it easy, too much discomfort and i'll stop....

Got everything crossed for you! Hope this sunny but cool weather holds for you and you get some views too.

Good luck! I happen to be driving from home to just south of Nottingham on Sunday afternoon so if I can assist in any way with the logistical hitch for the return journey give me a bell.

Hope you have a good run. I'm nervous as anything, and like you, have orders to stop if it gets too bad. Hopefully we will both make it to tyndrum.

I like your attitude to this event, it will help you in the long run (pardon that thinly veiled pun).

I also like your approach to nutrition. Chocolate milk, nom nom nom nom nom!
