So this is it, the official outfit for the Run on 3rd September, we have 12 weeks to prepare and get ready for this. Any wild ideas that I might have had that this would be remotely easy and maybe a bit of a group jog were completely blown out of the water yesterday.
We gathered at the tv studios to find Stella Bartram (looks far too good in lycra) armed with a pile of T-shirts and ready to go. Turns out most people have done some running and there was talk of past marathons etc from some. This rather put Phoebe (cheese expert) and me a bit in the shade. I had fondly thought that my running (no longer to be referred to as such – I’ve been jogging darlings, NOT running, huge diference I discovered yesterday!) had made me at least a tad fit, how wrong could I be.
Picture the scene, press photos on the bridge all leaping in the air and trying to look lively, tv cameras rolling and no doubt getting some horribly Bridget Jones shots (remember that firemans pole) courtessy of Phoebe and I bounding along at the back of the group.
Hard work, eeeeek!
