Is thirteen a lucky number?

Thirteen.

That’s the number of days left until I close the “Steve’s costume contest” part of my fundraising.

The leaderboard remains:

  1. Horse Head – £101
  2. Mark M – £55
  3. Adam A – £50
  4. Mark T – £50

(Names are used where a costume has not been suggested.)

I’m still not even halfway towards my fundraising goal – so please donate. It doesn’t matter if you can’t afford the £102 to get to the top of the leaderboard — get your idea on the bottom of the leaderboard, and if your idea is awesome it will rise to the top.

How’s the training?

This has been a light week on the training front. Tomorrow I am supposed to race a half marathon, according to the training plan. Unfortunately, I’m not registered in any races, so I’m just going to try to run 13.1 miles at a race-like pace, which will be less than a race, because practice runs are always slower.

But that means that it’s been a ‘tapering’ style week. Which, interestingly enough, seems to be leaving my legs feeling constantly sore from not enough movement. I try to tell them that they are moving way more than they did in March last year, but they aren’t listening.

Tomorrow I’ll give them a hard 13.1 miles. That’ll show ’em.
