Too many pies to think about beating my personal best

Have your say

Good luck to every single person who’ll be taking part in the Great South Run at the weekend.

The weather is looking perfect, with overcast skies and light to moderate winds.

From experience I can tell you that the last mile is always an absolute killer.

But when it’s accompanied by gale force south westerlies, you know God is having some fun with you!

My training was going really well up until July. Then taking two holidays ruined all my hard work. It seems I have eaten too many pies.

My plan was to beat my personal best, set when I first did the run four years ago.

But sadly I think I’ll just be happy to complete it without stopping. What time does Ken’s Kebabs open?
