2 Days To Go...
I'm not sure if it's the quarter of watermelon that's messing with my stomach, or the sudden realisation that I am about to do something I have never done before, but with two days to go, it's now doing somersaults.
I can't deny that I am wondering what I have signed up for, but really hoping I can get to the end - though I guess it wouldn't be a challenge if I thought I could sail through it!
Earlier this week, I worked my way through the recommended kit list to make sure I had everything, but there are still things missing that I need to get hold of, so a trip to Cotswold Outdoor tomorrow may be needed to get the final few bits and pieces. Even then, with almost everything you see in the image below (I culled a few clothes), there was no room for food, which is a concern for a muncher like myself :-/
I've been mulling over how I can share my progress, since I am not directly on Facebook any more, and for those that know me personally, I'll be traying to update my Instagram feed (@rcoleman_uk), signal permitting. For everyone else, the LiveTrail tracker is now available, so you can see roughly how I am progressing: use my bib number 2085 in the search to find my profile.
Let's not forget the reason I am doing this. With my nephew being diagnosed with Crohn's earlier this year, I am really keen to raise funds for Crohn's and Colitis UK in the hopes he can eventually benefit from a cure.
