San Francisco, California

Getting fit after a long rest is tough – two weeks of BootCamp, plus a couple of runs with the Palo Alto Run Club have proved to be a strain on the old bones. I’m getting a bit fitter, any maybe even shedding a pound or two, but it’s still hard work.

Rachel – when I was on the Atlantic, you texted me to say ‘After this nothing will ever seem hard again’. You were wrong!

But with every day that passes I seem to be more irrevocably committed to running in New Jersey with Dean Karnazes on 4th November. This morning: an email from The North Face‘s publicity agent:

‘I have seen your web site and story and it’s amazing, it will be great to have you in New Jersey and I look forward to meeting you!!!!

No worries on being ‘judged’ by your run in New Jersey, most media are just interested in how people inspire and excite one another….and what people’s stories are. ;0) It looks like CNN and will be interviewing Dean during the NJ run and I’ve let them know you will be there.’

Oh marvellous, now I get to humiliate myself on TV. I’ve already warned them I’ll be the beetroot-faced one puffing along in the background.
