The day's finally arrived, the steam engine firing the website was turned over and filled with coal, and it started up just before midnight. Tried to get in first but somebody beat me to it! Last I looked there were a dozen or so.
It's all real now, so much more for me doing this than in previous years. Before it was at the back of my mind training but always mentally shrugging and saying maybe, maybe not, before finally entering around easter and admitting it's going to happen. This year I'm in from the start.
Walked to work and back today, 10.3 miles each way. Safer than driving in this ice... Well wrapped up it was quite enjoyable, just a few icy patches to tread carefully over. Also nipped in to Holland and Barrett for two drums of banana whey protein shake mix. Half price until tomorrow, got to take advantage so got 2. Banana milk shake that's good for you! Nice.
Anyone out there who hasn't entered yet, you'd better hurry, closing date will be here before you know it!
