The Night Before Copenhagen Marathon 2011!

Twas the night before Copenhagen Marathon and all was quiet in the house of Lynne :-)

All day she had been lying on the sofa, resting her feet and eating pasta. Everytime she stood up she would have a little glass of water so as not to be dehydrated for the long run in the morning.

Lynne had packed her energy gels, pain killers, extra contacts, tissues and a spare hairband in her gel belt pouch. She had packed a bag for her husband for after the marathon containing her camera, jeans and her Copenhagen Marathon T-shirt.

Her luminous orange t-shirt, bright pink trainers, shorts, socks, watch, race number, pace band and chip were all in a pile in the bedroom so as not to be forgotten. Her phone was on charge with two alarms set, sun tan lotion was waiting on the side, and she had arranged to stop by a friends house, who lived right by the start, for her toilet trip in the morning.

Lynne looked up from typing her night before Copenhagen Marathon blog post and noticed that it was nearly 9:30 in the evening.

'Only 12 more hours to go until the start of my very first marathon,' she thought to herself. 'Will I make it to the finish?' The answer was 'YES I WILL!!!' And so will you too :-)

It doesn't matter if it's your first or your number one hundred marathon, it's still going to be a fantastic day!!
