Right. 8 days 'til marathon day.
G's training is supposed to be winding down now.
Everything else is winding up.
Neurosis - several points up.
Terror of getting last minute virus - at the max.
Losing things (today it's his mobile and his 'lucky' running tights) - on the red.
Mood swings - at tipping point.
Strange habits - no worse than usual. (Still going to bed with a hot water bottle and wearing woolly hat.)
Last minute horror - this could be it. The running vest he has to wear to show he's running for Refuge is not only shocking pink, but also has the Sun logo on the back.
Blood sugar - swinging.
Teeth - ground to stubs.
Support - superb. (Lots of emails, texts and phone calls wishing him luck. Also Marathon Mum kindly sent him a copy of her book, Running on Empty, which he's buried in when he's not running, testing his blood, chewing raw garlic or searching for lost items.)
So - looks like we're nearly ready then ...

Update: That link should have been Maniacmum. Sorry. And the book is brill ...
