Now some people may be wondering why the hell would I want to even attempt to run a marathon in a tutu, well it just makes the whole process more fun, you get lots of attention and it's not often as an adult you get a chance to be silly without being arrested or sectioned!
The tutu I made is very eye catching and a lot puffier (is that even a word?) than the orange one I wore last year at the London marathon or the pink and black one I wore for RACE FOR LIFE, now I know how to make them there will be no stopping me!
Done a 4 mile run yesterday, going to head out for a 5 miler in a bit all is on track, saw the physio this week, no major problems, achilles is fine, the body is holding up, just need to keep being careful, and fingers crossed I will get to the start line, tutu and all.
It is amazing to think that the marathon is just around the corner, all hard work done, miles logged, all I hope is that I enjoy myself as much as I did last year, yes I would love to post a faster time, but to be honest that is not the most important thing to me, I want to have a great experience, by pass the dreaded wall, reach the end injury free and mentally unscarred.
I think that next time I will make a red one, red would be quite a stunning colour to wear. Just need to find a race to wear one in, maybe the GREAT NORTH RUN in September!
Happy running and happy tutu making.
