Looks like I am registered for the half in Bantry after all. I found an e-mail confirming my bib no. (444). It would appear that the dog may have eaten my race pack (or it got lost in the post) - so all I am waiting for is confirmation as to whether I can pick up a new race pack on Sunday morning or whether I'll have to travel to Bantry on Saturday night.
As it's paid for and given that I was considering going down on Sunday and spectating from my bike I may just run the bloody thing (as opposed to race) - you know the sort of thing - warmup over 2 miles, stretch a little and wait for Thomas and help him to the finish - kidding.
So ITB permitting my test run on Sunday may just be somewhere between Glengarriff and Bantry (length unknown) - maybe I could coast along at 01:30 pace.
I started running shortly after my 40th birthday to train for the "once in a lifetime marathon" (mid-life crisis and all that) and haven't been able to stop since. This blog charts my progress as I attempt to go farther and faster than I have ever gone before.
