This morning i have been looking at the tens of different charities that are listed to run for. You can run to save the life of a homeless dog, to make sure someone gets saved at sea or to help people suffering from mental health issues. The different charities offer you little sweeteners to get you to run for them, these can be anything from pre-race meet ups and drinks along the way, to a very nice massage and a meal when you have finished. Although i doubt the massage is from a 6ft Swedish blond called Olga!!! If there was ever a way to get me round in less than an hour eh!!! As i am applying for a job with Mind, and fully respect what the organisation does then Mind is currently winning the race as the charity i will run for. Nothing scares me more in life than how fragile our minds are!

Looking at average times to run the marathon, it looks like a normal woman with good preparation would take 4hr 45 mins and for a man 4hr 20 mins. These numbers scare the hell out of me!!! The truely horrifying thought of constantly moving for anywhere near these times is terrifying! Until about 2 months before the start im sure i will have no idea what time i will be aiming for. As it stands if i beat seeing the sun twice i will be happy.

At the moment as it says earlier, i have lumps on my chest that resemble breasts, i believe they are called “Moobs” or “Man Boobs”. So chafing is a big worry. I have no plans to get 2 miles round and start bleeding from aforementioned moobs! Over the next few months i will look into different ways of stopping this happening, with number one being losing weight and them hopefully dissapearing. But failing this, Vasaline seems to be the moobs chafing preventor of choice!

I am cutting back on the rubbish food to the point i can almost say “no i dont eat chocolate or anything anymore” but im not quite there yet, i still want too. It’ll pass hopefully! Everything is gearing up to stopping smoking and getting my trainers moving on the 13th May.
