It's the 13th today and it has got me thinking about my 13.1 mile run on Sunday.
I plan to run the Liverpool Half Marathon in memory of my dad who passed away in 2010.
I love to run but am getting increasingly anxious about the race as I hate big events.
I ran 11 miles a couple of weeks ago so know I can cover the distance but I hate waiting around beforehand and get very nervous.
This dread of the race is killing my love of running.
After Sunday I will never enter a race again.
Although I have run several half marathons and all under two hours I will be happy to get round this one without stopping.
I just hope 13 will be my lucky number on Sunday.
By the way did I tell you that we will be hosting my son's 18th birthday party for 50 of his friends the evening before.
Maybe that's the real reason I am so anxious.
I wore:
Boots - Clarks
Skirt - Noa Noa
Top  - and M


  1. You look lovely in this outfit - I love the neutral colours. Sorry you are nervous...hope it passes as you start to run in memory of your lovely Dad. Good for you. Xxxx

  2. I'm sure the run and the party will be an absolute breeze! That striped top shows off your gorgeous figure a treat! x

  3. You have a couple of big events coming up, no wonder you are anxious. I like the camel/black color combo a lot.


  4. I wish you all the best for the run and particularly for the birthday party.
    You look great today in that romantic skirt!

  5. You look beautifully svelte and hour-glassy, Jane!
    A 13 mile run sounds impossible to me, I am so impressed with your fitness and stamina. What a shame you feel so anxious about it, despite your love of running. Just stay off the wine the night before... Hope both the party and the race go brilliantly. xxxx

  6. sounds like you've got quite the weekend ahead of you! good luck on your run!

  7. Blimey thats a busy way to spend the evening prior to a race. I am sure you will do incredible and that your dad would be sooo proud of you. Good luck with it hun
