    I'd be terrified! I'm quite glad I didn't get in. There's no way I would have done enough training by now.

    I was scheduled to do the Reading half but it was cancelled due to snow. Some crazy bastards ran it anyway. I walked over to the gym and attempted to do the distance on the treadmill given that I was all psyched up for it - And I was on for a personal best (sub 1:45) but I didn't realise the bastard treadmill goes into automatic cooldown mode after an hour. I said many bad words at it. I got it going again but was off the pace, so had to run super quick for a KM to get back on the right pace but that absolutely fucked me and I gave up.

    In rather a nice gesture, all the Reading half runners have been given a 40 evoucher for Sports Direct in light of the race cancellation. I used mine yesterday
