Me and Paula…and 29,998 others

After the traumas of the Olympics, I thought that Paula Radcliffe would appreciate some company and support when she competes in tomorrow evening’s Nike Run London 10 kilometre race, so I signed up for a place.

However, there must have been a mix up at Nike HQ because Paula’s start number is 1 and mine is 22,080. Undaunted, I read through my race day instructions and found to my horror that Paula is starting in wave 1 at 1930hrs but I can only start at 2030hrs with the rest of wave 4. I’ve been training hard but I doubt I’ll be able to catch her if she’s on form.

That said, if you’re at a loose end, pop down to Rotherhithe/Surrey Quays, Butler’s Wharf or Tower Bridge tomorrow evening and cheer me on – I’ll be the one in a DayGlo yellow top.
