6 Days To Go
FYI - I totally forgot to post this last week.
There’s no running away from it now. I will run a second marathon in 6 days time. 26.2 miles for the second time in my life! What have I become?! As I said yesterday, I think my decision to run 10 marathons in 10 years is an odd one but we will see where it takes me. I get to work with the best sportswear and running brand in the world next week and interact with over 40 people that not only run marathons, but have similar interests to myself. As I prepare for my five stone project and blog it will be a great experience for me.
Yes I won’t get a PB but there’s so much more on offer for me, there’s opportunities, connections to be made and once in a lifetime experiences to be had, who would turn all of that down?! I’m young and exploring the world through a lifestyle tht has changed my life, not many people my age can say that they’ve done that.
Yes I am blowing my own trumpet.
But before a Marathon you have to get in Marathon mode, and that means blowing your own trumpet. I thank the people that have got me here, Daniel Maskitt for his ongoing support to me since April, my beautiful girlfriend for staying by my side when I was a man ready to quit, my ever loving mother for showing me that I can continue to make people proud as long as I try my best and to Charlie Dark who reminded me that running is like life, it’s hard. He also reminded me that I have time on my side and that I can do it! My run dem crew family is strong and I thank everyone for their well wishes that I received on Tuesday, you are all in my heart whilst I pound the German Capitals streets with RDC plastered on my back, ready for war.
I will enjoy myself next week and take in the experience for all it’s worth, Nike is a great company, Berlin is an extraordinary City and the international groups need no compliments for we know what they can bring to ones life.
