Last week it snowed and this week it rained. A lot. However, not easily put off, we donned our waterproof jackets and set off on our early morning runs as usual.*
Running conditions aside, there were three things on our minds this week. Firstly there were Nicky's massive blisters which have become a bit of a talking point here at Fruit Towers. Then there were Eloise's sore knees. And finally the issue of how we could help WellChild find volunteers to help out on the day of the Marathon. No solutions for the first two problems, we decided that the best way sort out the third was to tell you all about it on our blog.
In a nutshell, WellChild are looking for volunteers to cheer loudly for all their runners, tell lots of people about all the great stuff WellChild does for sick children and give Wellchild goodies to other spectators. There are 2 official WellChild supporting points at Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf and they also need lots of supporters at the start and finish as well as in St James Park to guide and welcome the weary Wellchild runners home. If you would like to help out please complete this online application form.
More on Nicky's blisters next week.
