I’m waiting for my cafetière to boil and I’m already feeling the pre race flutters… and I’m not even running! It’s been that way all my life, the anticipation of competition.
This year as in previous yrs I’ll be managing a team of Student Sports Therapists providing post event massage for runners of the Mental Health Foundation. This will be my third and final year with them as I move to pastures new.
I’m always touched by the stories of runners and their journeys to the marathon and motivation to support this charity. It’s a privilege to be part of this event and I have a great deal of admiration for all those who contribute. Having trained for and run 3 marathons I under the personal sacrifice necessary to take on this challenge.
