Probably still half-asleep, I missed a signpost within the first mile today and ran a couple of miles up a hill in the wrong direction! Leaving my phone in the car for good measure, I frustratingly had to re-trace my steps and apologise profusely to Hannah who was waiting patiently on the RIGHT road, wondering where I had got to! After an hour or so we pulled in to speak to Neil Pringle on his BBC Radio Sussex breakfast show. He asked where we were and what the toughest part of the challenge has been so far. I opted for Day 1 just as it was so incredibly hot and I spent the afternoon inching along wondering quite what I had let myself in for! The route today was quite industrial and I found myself running through road works alongside huge Heavy Good Vehicles! I had a patch of ‘running on empty’ in the middle of the marathon and realised I had depleted my glycogen levels after 17 miles or so. It’s never a pleasant feeling! Hannah came to the rescue (not for the first time) with cheese and ham croissants and with the miles ticking by once again my spirits lifted. It was also a real boost to morale to cross the border into France! From here we head north-west all the way to Calais. There are still hundreds of miles to run and many, many marathons ahead… but we are getting there step by step!
