This is the kit I wore to run the Edinburgh Marathon in 2011, so I thought it would be appropriate to use it again here. This time I will a fourth if not a fifth Gu packet. I only had three in Edinburgh and by the last 4-5 miles I was relying on the kindness of strangers holding out gummibears and any other sugary items to keep myself going.
My January runstreak lasted 17 days before I had to give in to particularly nasty combination of long work days and dangerously slippery walkways around my flat. I managed to pick things up again for a bit while on holiday in Philly (running with Momo is huge fun!) and I felt proud of having cracked the century mark for the first time in my years as a runner.
