    Until I'll be crossing the line at the blue start for the London marathon.

    Got to travel down to Sussex tonight, via my friends' in Hertfordshire. Brief my parents on where they are meant to be supporting me and meeting me afterwards. Catching the train into London tomorrow, have to find my way around the tube to everywhere I need to go :eek:.

    Then 26.2 miles on Sunday, find my parents in Leicester Square after the finish and travel back to theirs. :Yawn:

    No sure what I'm most scared by: finding my way around London (I've been doing it on my own occasionally for the last 13 years so I should be fine), trying to squash everything I need for a weekend in London into the small plastic bag I'm allowed to leave in the kit trucks, or running/walking all the way round (having missed a lot of my training runs with the cold turned tonsillitis) :scared:

    If you see a mad woman plodding along in a red, yellow and white FetchEveryone top on TV on Sunday, it might be me :D
