I've always been one for setting targets. I like to have something to aim for. So having been back running for just about a year properly now, there's one major achievement left to unlock. A marathon.
As most will know by now, I'm currently awaiting news whether I've been successful in the ballot for a place in the 2014 London Marathon so I had to have a back up plan.
The Brighton Marathon filled pretty quickly. There was a few other options but Paris sounded pretty good.
So I've finally gone and done it. I'm all booked. On Sunday 06/04/2014, I will take on my first marathon distance run. God help me. Hotel is booked too, a Best Western just around the corner from the start/finish area at the Arc de Triomphe. Eek.
