Pre Marathon Stress

I think I have had the start of the flu, 3 times in the last week. Every twinge of a muscle is the sign of an injury. I feel like I have forgotten something important like registering properly or confirming my accommodation reservation.

In 1 week I'll be running the Gold Coast Marathon.

In 1 day the auction will be over and has done much better than I had hoped for.

In 1 hour Katy will have made Dutch Apple Pancakes for breakfast.

mmmmm ... yum!

The Croutons (Clare and Andrew) have landed and already I have asserted my dominance in a game called Abalone as well as Jenga. Last night I made "the seaplane" from Andrew's book of folding paper airplanes .... it was quite a challenge ... but persistence paid off late into the night .... I won't be beaten although I think they should work on the instructions.

Katy finished her last long run and is looking good for the marathon. Did I mention she is making Dutch Apple Pancakes?

PMS? Relax Toasty - its your imagination.

As for pacing suggestions, once the field has thinned out, I suggest coming to a complete stop every half hour or so, maybe at drink stops and trying to encourage those that are dropping off back to the pack. Then sprint back to the front of the pack and resume your pacing duties. Just make sure you tell everyone what you are doing beforehand!!! Pacing is not neccessarily about leading from the front the whole way.

Those pancakes do look mighty tasty. Oh yeah, thanks for the reminder. If you have a marathon coming up that must mean that I have one to follow shortly as well.

Totally unrelated comment - I think I met your twin yesterday. I took my daughter's boyfriend on a tour of a local community college and our tour guide was Mark from Australia. He looked like your twin! I should've taken my camera w/me!
