So what was the first thing I though of once I had digested my London Marathon acceptance magazine?

"So I'll need NEW RUNNING KIT??!!"
....... Right!!
Come on tell me you thought that too, PLEAZE ;-)

Can you believe I actually looked at the covering letter and still turned it over going .... "so where's my fleece" ????? 
Oh well, I'll have to get ....
instead :-)
On a serious note, 
I will be getting this as I haven't had it checked since I did the London Moonwalk in 2007.  If I want to avoid injury due to my 6 month training insanity I believe its a good idea.
I am also going through beginner marathon training programmes at the moment.  These are what I have perused thus far:
I'm going to put something together and email it across to pops-in-law (my running mentor guru), and see what he has to say and then well um, I'll start it!

Before I go I want to say a huge big GO GIRL to Rachel @ Rachel's Delicious Journey who is doing the Cancer Research Shine half marathon Saturday.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone.
