Lyric:- 'I've got to keep on chasin' a dream' - Scholz
Song Choice:- Well, 'it's been such a long time'...
Wow, what a lyric to start off my 'Marathon Eve's' blog eh? As it's sure been a long old wait to race again. But here I am back on it and I listened to this incredible multi-layered offering from the 70's AOR specialists 'Boston' on the long drive from Cardiff to Eastbourne today. Take a listen for yourself here and relive 1976 just one more time.
I'll listen to it again tomorrow before I be relive my 10 previous completions of my favourite Beachy Head Marathon. Contrary to popular belief, I will be taking it really easy and will be using most of the 9 hour limit to cover the 26.2 miles without killing myself. (Mother & Wife, please take note that I've taken your advice onboard and I'm fully aware of the risks I'm taking and I'll stop if I start feeling like I'm going to die). Phew...Everyone is SO worried and I'm not!!! I feel excited...
What I will also feel hopefully, is alive and back to feeling like the old me again, chasing' the dream..
And whatever's left of me, I promise will let you know how I get on tomorrow.
