T-2 Months

It’s all getting a bit too real.

A small set of things that have happened this week:

  • I ran twenty miles for the first time
  • I did my first photoshoot for donors of £50 or more
  • I received my running shirt for the race
  • I ran without a pad under the ball of my foot for the first time since the morning of the stiff toe

It seems that this thing is really happening.

I can cover the distance. I have a shirt. And I’ve successfully trained through my first injury, only missing a single training day. (Assuming that I don’t wake up with a case of stiff toe tomorrow).

We are now two months from the start line … and one month before a costume decision is made, and donations no longer count towards what I’ll wear on the day.

Support me.

I’m not the only one with a foot problem. Elsa is suffering along with me, and hers is a bit more severe – a full detachment.

On the other hand, I suspect that she has an easier time icing it.

Leaderboard Update

Who gets to decide how I dress for the London Marathon? One month and three days before costume choices are finalised, and we have another leaderboard shakeup.

The leaderboard:

  1. Mark M – £55
  2. Mike F – £51
  3. Adam A – £50
  4. Mark T – £50

Thus far, nobody has nominated a specific costume, to garner more support from other donors. The leaderboard represents cumulative donations by costume (where possible), or by person (where no costume is nominated).
