Feeling a bit emotional and nervous about tomorrow. Need focus. I'm doing this for everyone on my friends list who had had a miscarriage, stillbirth our premature baby. Like this status if that's you.Nearly 100 people "liked" that status. And to be honest that's is what got me through. So a massive thank you to everyone who "liked" and commented.
My asthma over the last few months really affected my training, and then my knee injury 2 weeks ago, I was close to pulling out. But that response gave me all the motivattion I needed.
My running buddy Jennifer was an absolute star she kept me sane, and focused. And importantly supplied Percy Pigs at every 1 kilometre mark.
By 8 k I'd had enough and was ready to quit, but Jen kept me going, and got our her iPod and played "mmmmm bop" that song is forever etched in my brain! I was crying at the finish line, I just couldn't believe I did it, and in the last 2 k when it was hard I kept thinking "this doesn't compare to how hard it is to lose baby, get a grip".

So this was my time and place. Unfortunately it would appear that I haven't made selection for the Olympics this time. I have to say I am
I'm really proud to announce I've raised £635 for Tommy's and you can still make a donation on my Virgin Money Giving page.
A massive thank you to Tommy's for giving me this opportunity, and to the Landmark Hotel who gave Tommy's a weekend room, which they kindly gave to us. It's been a fantastic weekend.
And next time I want to raise money, I'm baking cakes!
