The last but 1.

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!

Good luck Sarah, I'll be happy to make up the shortfall to a grand if no one come through in time.
