Acrostic - Marathon Madness

Marathon Madness – yes, I must be mad!

April 22nd – that’s the big day.

Run Carole, run – I know how Forest Gump feels!

Always on my mind; this marathon, it feels, has taken over my life.

Training – day and night, night and day, it never ends.

Howling winds, the dark, the rain, even the snow – I’m training in all weather conditions.

Obviously I’m finding this hard, horrible in fact!

New trainers – there goes another pair!


Miles... oh my gosh, 26.2 of them!

Adrenaline – this pushes you through but it’s so important to pace yourself properly.

Donate, please - https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/carolebyrne?utm_id=2&utm_term=vGMY97G6k

Needing and deserving children in Ghana will benefit gratefully from your hugely kind donation.

Easy? No, it’s hard. It’s horrible. Yet I am sure it will all be worth it!

So close, at 26 miles I’ll be running past Buckingham Palace and down The Mall towards the finishing line!

Swift half... I think I’ll deserve a swift half (or a bottle after this!)
