• The inability to think of anything else except, marathon, running, marathon, running and so on
  • Constant butterflies in my stomach
  • Reading everything on pacing/tapering/nerves
  • Every twinge is major, oh my ankle is stiff, ouch my back etc
  • The fear of falling over, so much so that there will be no Killerton parkrun for me tomorrow, a safe flat one instead
  • Panic, about losing things, where is the registration form?
  • Constant research on the web of all things marathony
  • The desire to carb load

Yes this case of Maranoia is serious but I am hoping not terminal.


About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

        Lol! Aren’t there about 30,000 runners? I’ve never watched it on TV before but I think that this year I should. There has to be someone on screen for all those hours, you never know it might be you!!!

  4. Love it. I like to refer to this as ‘Delicate Runner Syndrome’.
