A HUGE THANK YOU! to every one of you who supported me in running the London Marathon – together we raised over £1500 for our school's charity!

26 miles and 385 yards is a long way and the final few miles were definitely the toughest, but the support from the crowds was phenomenal – I’m so glad I had my name on the front of my running shirt! A remarkable day.

All set for London Marathon tomorrow - come rain or shine I’m ready and looking forward to it. Huge thanks to everyone who has sponsored me and encouraged me - can’t quite believe it’s happening!

YES! My first run for nine days and it’s a YES! An easy run around Burgess Park with Josephine and Daniella went OK and the past week of looking after my lower back seems to have paid off - I’m ready for the London Marathon on Sunday!!

I went over to Excel earlier to pick up my race bib - the excitement's building! If anyone's out and about on Sunday watching the marathon you can track me on the app with my name or number. Now all we need is for the rain to stay away and the sun to shine.

And big thanks to the latest sponsors: Anonymous, Jayne, Kevin, Anonymous, Sherin, BdN and Jill.

The Great Saga of the Lettering
When picking up your London Marathon race bib you can also get your name printed onto your own t-shirt – for a price. OK, I thought, let's go DIY. I buy a set of iron-on letters and enlisting the help of H, the resident teenager, we begin ironing the letters onto a black t-shirt. All goes well until suddenly, with one slip of the iron we’ve melted a hole through the top of the t-shirt. After some consideration we carefully cut out a panel with the letters on, find another t-shirt and H finishes it off with the sewing machine. I’m very pleased with it. It has the look of a motorbiker’s patch.
