February 8th 2021
Today I was again rejected for the London Marathon. Every year I put my name in the ballot, every year I’m told no. Bastards.
Well, actually, no. I’m not that fussed about missing out this year, for a very nonsensical reason. See, I’m probably actually running too much at the moment, and I couldn’t fit marathon training around the other running I do.
For the last 281 days I’ve been running a 5k every day, and I intend to continue doing so. But doing daily 5ks is not conducive to effective London marathon training.
So actually I’m not even that mad this year.
Until tomorrow, still, it’s never nice to get rejected.
