I threw caution to the wind this morning and entered the public ballot for the London Marathon. Won't find out if I have a place until October (which seems like a very long time - surely they can pull names out of an electronic hat well before then!) Only a 1 in 6 chance of getting a place, but I would rather have my own place than have the stress of raising £1,000+ for a charity place.
Having a bit of a stress fest about my heart rate monitor - it keeps telling me that it has a low battery, despite it only being changed about 6mths ago. There is no way I can get the battery changed before Sunday, as they have to be sent away, and I hate not wearing it when I run. Argh!!!
