my first marathon !!!

Hi this is my first marathon, ive done a half marathon and some training and thats it.....

After reading some of the blogs on here im not to sure now if im going to be ready for the london marathon , I am training doing 4 miles three times a week but i haven't had the time to run a long run yet . Im running the silverstone half marathon on march 11th so i guess this will tell me if i need to pull out or not  . the last half marathon i ran i did it in 2hr 25 but im a little bit older now  

maybe its just that im getting alittle bit scared now the big day is coming quick, all the other blogs seem to be looking forward to it . is it only me thats scared? im scared i will get injured, get ill, but most of all im scared that i wont be able to finish the race and let all my friends and family down and my sponsers ..... i know im not going to be up there with the quick times but i hope around 4hr 30 would be great for me . im not after a great time i just want to prove i can finish it . ive been running for a couple of years now but i always seem to stop every winter so im back to square one again in the summer but this year ive kept the training up

im out running again tonight just a 4 mile run , i pulled my ankle the last time i ran so i haven't run for 3 days now so fingers crossed its all fixed, and its so sunny today it will make it worth it

please someone tell me that im not the only person scared of this marathon ..................
