Define yourself

Right, I've bought new running shoes, I've got a couple of issues of Runner's World to leaf through for inspiration. I've even gone jogging a few times and called it 'training'.

Now the last thing I need before the Silverstone Half Marathon on Sunday is a mantra. (Well, the last thing I need is a torn hamstring, I suppose. I wasn't speaking figuratively though.)

The mantra should be something I can repeat to myself for 13-and-a-bit miles to urge myself on and regulate my breathing at the same time.

When Deena Kastor won the Chicago Marathon in 2005, she repeated her coach's pre-race advice define yourself throughout.

My mantra is a bit snappier. It rhymes with Buck's Fizz.


I want to donate some dosh for ye cause but I don't want to use my credit card. Sort that out for the next one, as long as I'm here I'm ready to drop an ichiman for your cause.
Tremendously kind! If you're prepared to go to the effort of postage, you can send it to me at:

112 Broomfield Rd,

The Nicaraguan damsels and victims of human rights abuses worldwide will hail you as their saviour.
That the correct address?
That's my Cov address, which is better than my London address, as I could get kicked out of there pretty much at any point.
