Oh god. I'm going to die.
you jammy git.
I don't know why I kept trying.
My brother got in first time a few years back before he'd even run an organised race.
I've never gone more than 10 miles; I have the great south in a month and I've not trained anywhere near enough recently.
as a 'prize'. I'd never run before in my life. I didn't die, I did cry and ruin my shins/knees though.
He'll be 56.
I thought there was meant to come a point where I'd be more successful than him, but he's not making it easy.
but then I knew I was already anyway (Good for Age place). Good luck :)
