I am really going to run the London Marathon.

I have seriously been sitting here in my flat all day thinking about what to write in today’s blog. I mean it feels like my life’s been leading up to this point for such a long time, it’s all I’ve been thinking about…what my life has been focussed on….it’s as clear as day that this is the biggest challenge of my life.

I suppose I’m just not ready. I wish I had a few more weeks to prepare. These last two weeks have been hellish, getting the nutrition right, tapering…what the hell does that even mean? And I feel like I’ve got it all wrong, I’ve put on about 5lbs in weight (damn you pasta), and I feel like I’ve lost some of my fitness.

But hey, here we are.

My kit is all laid out, I’ve got my head round the logistics of the route and I’ve done as much begging for donations as I can stomach.  There seriously is nothing else I can do now, I just need to get to that start line and do my best.

Ive been glued to twitter checking out how other people are feeling, picking up any last minute tips, the support has been amazing and it makes you feel like you are part of this massive historic thing.

So this is fattymustrun signing out, London Marathon 2012 do your worst
