    Ah I just had a thought though. Won't it be around 11.30 on Sunday evening by now...next week? In which case it will be all over with won't it? You will have stopped brickin' it hours ago! You will be triumphant and very proud of yourself and so will we be :D

    Hi Andy, how you doing? Are you running? I don't know much about training in the "run up" (sorry :)) to an event. Is it full-on or do you tail off a bit? And how are the nerves? Doing your yoga ;)

    had a great day today, i went to excel in london and picked up my race number etc, somehow managing to spend £150 on stuff i didnt need lol, was terrific though :)

    im really getting excited more than nervous, im determined to enjoy it, although im sure the nerves will flood over me again soon

    HI Andy, just saying 'Good Luck' for Sunday as I may not get the chance to be near a computer for long tomorrow or Saturday....and even if I do the internet is playing up at the moment. I will be thinking of you - not sure I can manage to use this twitter info, but we'll see! Oh, and If my guess for your time is right, you can keep the £100 for your charity.

    Good Luck
