Get my number through for the half-marathon this Sunday, along with a rather nice orange technical running shirt. If all or most of the 11,000+ people run wearing it as suggested, it’s going to look like a Dutch voetbal invasion. Looking forward to the goodie bag at the end if they are giving out freebies like this. Hog roast, apparently. Mmmm… pork.

Seem to have recovered pretty well from the 15 miler, which is encouraging as I am going to have to reduce the taper from the advised three to two weeks before the big day to get two last long runs in. I want to do 17 and 19 miles on consecutive Sundays. The first has to be in Maidenhead, where to go for the other?
