Such an idiot. While everyone else was receiving their “Congratulations You’re in London” magazine, mine didn’t arrive. I rang them in the end and they told me that although I’d had my place confirmed I hadn’t actually paid for it. I stupidly missed the payment deadline which happened while I was on holiday straight after Holkham Triathlon.
I was gutted. I wanted to be on the Good For Age start line with Gemma for her first GFA start. But there was nothing could be done. Other than to enter Manchester Marathon instead. It was plan A that had been forgotten in the excitement of Gemma and I on the GFA start line. But I’ve unfinished business at Manchester, so it’s all good.
