I've just done the last little run before the big one on Sunday. Really little. Just 15 minutes. But lately it seems to be all about the numbers.
Since the day I decided to do it, I've done 51 training runs, slugged down 4 litres of beetroot juice this week alone, run all but half a mile of the 13.1, and eaten my 5 a day. After each run I've religiously done the 7 leg-hip-yoga-poses Anna The Yoga teacher invented for me, and sat with my legs up the wall for 5 minutes (highly recommended). My mile time has speeded up by an average of 90 seconds, and I've broken in my 2nd pair of running shoes, got hooked on 6-packs of strawberry Shot Blox and ironed 8 letters onto my running vest.
I've also raised a total of £952 for Mind. I'm still aiming for £1000 and will be unsubtly chasing up the few mates who still haven't sponsored me. Even tonight, Chan at the corner shop and Linda over the road popped round with a fiver each, and I still have two mystery donors who may never come to light. I've been a bit overawed by people's generosity.
3,2,1. I'm really, really looking forward to it.
Wish me luck!
