Someone asked me the other day what my preferred weather would be for the marathon.
Hmm. Probably sunny but cool, but the honest answer is that it really doesn't matter. If training over winter has taught me anything, it's that you get the weather you get. If you have a 10 week midweek run in the training programme and it's dark and throwing it down with rain, then you still go out and do the run, don't you? I do, anyway.
If there's one thing about Sunday that I can't control, it's the weather... so it seems like a waste of energy worrying about it.
That said, this is ridiculous:
I guess I'll be packing a woolly hat and gloves that I don't mind throwing away, then.
Maranoia (n.): Fear of something going wrong (illness, injury, etc.) in the weeks before a marathon.
We've passed £10,000 in our fundraising, by the way. Thanks for all your support and there's still time to donate!
