OK – we’re on for a 6am start tomorrow! Just completed a final shop with my wife – plenty of bananas, soups, cookies and, obviously, some pot noodeles….
It’s fair to say I’m quite nervous. Although this is a relay rather than a full solo, the pressure comes from not wanting to let down your team mates. Big sense of fear of the unknown, but balanced out with an underlying current of excitement too. All the training and planning is over, time for a good night’s sleep and off early around 3 am for the drive to Dover.
Wish me luck.
