30 days to go and emotions running high.....

posted on Friday, 2nd October 2009 | find under Tamara, Nutrition

Tears and sweat this morning. Back in training with less than 30 days to go... and a call from my "buddy" at Marie Curie (who kindly rings to see how I am getting on with my training) really inspired me. It's not about me and my aching feet any more. I am part of a team raising money for this amazing charity and I quite simply have to succeed. Today's early run took me from Hammersmith to Putney and Barnes then home again in dazzling sunshine with a welcome cool breeze. It also took me on an emotional journey with my late father with some beautifully vivid memories flashing through my mind. I found some tears running down my cheeks as I came back over Hammersmith Bridge but I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Cancer is a terrible thing... but it also binds people in extraordinary ways...whether through hope, determination, courage or grief. The people at Marie Curie have given me more than enough reason to get out there and finish this 26 mile course - so that's exactly what I am going to do......training, it's back on!!
