in the run-up to the outlaw half I’m Sat in the car waiting for the start of a half marathon. It’s been quite a challenging week. My poor little three month old is feeling really unwell and she hasn’t slept very well at all. Because she hasn’t slept very well nobody has. I guess that the tickly throat that I’m sat here with is what is affecting her at the moment. Absolutely any dogs of running quickly today are very wishful thinking. I think it best I’ll be having a pacey Jog around the course. We will have to see how close I get to my ideal pace of four minutes and 16 seconds per kilometre. To top it all off I forgot my running gloves this is not good. The weather outside is cold drizzly and miserable.
