When you misread the first two lines for Congratulations on your selection instead of commiserations on your unsuccessful entry. The two second panic and swear word that leaves your mouth then you re-read it and sigh in relief. Not sure I could run a back to back half marathon! #notmeanttobe#londonmarathon#26miles#ballotentry#unsuccessful

Happy Post Day!
This magazine was sitting on the doormat when I got home last night and I can’t quite believe it! Both Steve and I were inspired watching this year’s @londonmarathon so we decided to enter the ballot to try and get a place, not thinking either of us would get in first time and we were both very lucky to get in first time!
I’m currently 37 weeks pregnant with a planned cesarian section booked for two weeks time and I’m unsure whether I will have to defer my place until next year but I am hopeful to be able to complete it next year. @londonmarathon#you’rein #londonmarathon2019#ballotentry
Looking ahead to next year now that autumn is here. Loving the cooler running temps. Have made a final decision to enter the ballot for my target race next year. Had an amazing time running in 3 tough ultras this year and discovered a strength for the uphill bits, just need to learn how to descend without being a big girls blouse 😂. So with this plan on mind I need to move up a gear, started this morning with a 10 mile tempo, turned out to be a 10 mile and 10k Pb. Not wishing my life away but exciting running plans to come ( now I just need to give an offering to the ballot gods, will they take my first born?? Jokes ). .
BALLOT ENTRY COMPLETE ✅
Who else has signed up for the Virgin London Marathon 2019?
I’ve definitely got the running bug after completing this years. Fingers crossed for a place next year, I’m ready to train and give it my all for a faster time of Sub 5 Hours 💪🏼 @londonmarathon#VirginLondonMarathon2019#worldrunners

Ballot opened yesterday & application Done! I'd love to run the 2019 @londonmarathon & hopefully shave 2 hours off my last attempt with an injury. Nothing can fully explain just how amazing this marathon is so let's see what happens in October #londonmarathon#ballotentry#letsdothis
🙈 Not sure how I have been talked in to this...... What of they don't let my microwave in the Hotel? Wasn't overjoyed at the 10min walk in Manchester to get to the start due to mass numbers so can only imagine how long this will take to cross. Also very concerned that I will get in and he won't 🙄 which means he will "train" me 😂 #pushycoach#londonmarathon2019#ballotentry
