The past week has been a rollercoaster of ups and downs for me so I’m looking forward to having some time out in the desert.
Here’s me in my full kit (X-bionic top, Raidlight hat, Salomon skort, Injinji compression socks, Casio watch, OMM adventure light 20L bag, Raidlight bottles, Raidlight gaiters and Salomon shoes).
Thanks to Sweaty Betty for a spare change of kit, Shock Absorber for the bra and Runderwear for the knickers.
The daily checklists
My big bro and sister-in-law for picking me up when I’ve been down (got the card Andrea today xxx).
To my new family for all their support, a beautiful picture and making me smile (thanks for the card Nigel).
Mum and Dad, I blame you for my single-mindedness and determination but it will see my through. Please don’t worry about me, I’ll be ok and will remember to eat.
B, Tess, George, I’ll see you on the other side to get all this bridal shenanigans out the way. My running friends for all the laughs we’ve had in the mud.
And finally to the love of my life, ha ha ha, you can’t text me now when you’re drunk. I hope to find all the walls painted in the hallway on my return and don’t use my Twitter account to find out how to homebrew cider. Seriously, thanks for everything, I know it’s been tough and at times quite unbearable for you but I promise to come back in one piece ready for our next adventure and life together. Much love to you all and let’s meet on the other side.
