    I'm running a 20 mile race sunday, starting and finishing on the top gear track so I'm stoked (if a little nervous) :)

    I'm actually thinking of sparking the BBQ up as the weather here has been lovely the past couple of days apart from early morning mist.:)

    Good luck with the run Andy. I hope you meet your target but seriously well done for sticking to your training and making it to this distance. That marathon will be a doddle for you:)

    Bank holiday here in Ireland, so a three day weekend!

    Best of luck for the run, Andy. You are an inspiration! :watching::wideyed::happy:

    I'm just out to lunch with a friend before she heads to US for a holiday. It's a seafood restaurant on the waterfront, so I should be able to enjoy myself and indulge in a glass of wine too.:)
