Its only 5 weeks until the start of the Glencoe Marathon. It was 5 minutes ago i started training for this run. I would like to have a short race, say 3 miles against myself from when i first started just to see what the gap would be. It would be interesting to see if i punch myself when i start laughing at me wheezing across the finish line.

I am going to run 20 miles this weekend with friends who are training for the Snowdon Marathon. My wife is joining us at the 10 mile point. It’s a flat course and the weather looks ok. I have Steak sandwiches and a couple of cold beers planned for the finish. You gotta have goals.
