This will be short, and not very sweet, and I may come back another time to say a little more about it.
I am going to withdraw from the Vienna City Marathon. It’s not because I am injured, or haven’t trained. It’s because I can’t afford to go. I am meant to be running a 20 mile warm-up race this Sunday, but at the moment it looks like I won’t be able to get there either (I was planning on hiring a car, as public transport is basically non-existent to the location).
Over the day I have slowly realised that it is very, very unlikely that I will be able to run a marathon before I turn 30 on May 6th, which was my goal.
Life is kicking my arse at the moment.
