Embracing the crazy - a blog thingy.

Lucky old me got into VLM 2019, on the ballot, finally. Yay. Last year I got there by virtue of my club place, double yay. Last year I had a group of friends that I trained with as they all had charity places. It was good, it was bloomin' tough having trained through an arctic winter to run in near tarmac melting, typical British Summer in one day conditions. But it rocked. Fast forward to 2018. Comes the real battle  Currently managing my Mum who is seriously ill with Lewi Body Dementia, a frail and aging father and my darling youngest who got struck down with the thing I hate most in the world,  M.E/CFS. This is the story, I guess, of how I'm going to train for London  this year, with all the variables, no training pals, as none of them want to do it again, and the family health issues  oh and I'm a plant based eater...and that's meant lately crisps...lots.
