With less than 24 hours to go until Team The Place for Homes run the Cardiff Half Marathon who are helping to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. We are sitting here in my kitchen - the three of us - discussing our last supper!
Ok so it's desperation point, the nerves have kicked in, all the training guides say eat well the night before making sure it's not something new and get an early night!! An early night?? Sleep ?? Is that even possible when we're now thinking: What if the rain is torrential? What if the wind picks up? Can we really run 13.1 miles?
Then we think how our mum carried on through the operations and the chemo and then the radiotherapy and suddenly the race seems easy. We're not doing it to break records but to raise money for the cause that is so close to our hearts - Breast Cancer Care.
We will do it!! We will get to the end because whenever it gets hard we'll be thinking about how it got hard for Mum and she kept going and for everyone else who has suffered from this terrible disease. We'll stay positive, stay focussed and get to the end.
So time for bed now and for the first time there's no persuading my brother and husband that they need to go to bed early and that they don't need that last beer. Tonight it's pasta and soft drinks for us all!!
Tomorrow morning we WILL complete The Cardiff Half Marathon and we'll have raised money for the fantastic charity Breast Cancer Care.
If you see us give us a wave and cheer us on - it's harder than it looks!! We'll be looking out for the Breast Cancer care teams on route!!
So this is it; here we go - sleep now to dream of blisters and hills and trainers and numbers.
Thanks for your support
