I'm writing this with just a few days to go before it really happens once again.

I can't quite believe that this will be the THIRD year I will take my place at the (very pretty) starting line in Lammas Park.

As previously mentioned I only did the first one because it was the first ever for Ealing and I just wanted to show my support.

Never for one second did I expect to be donning the gear - raising funds for the headline charity Alzheimer's Society - and taking on 13.1miles of parks and peaks and pavements of Ealing ....for a third time.

So, reluctant runner I may be but I am a bit relentless too.

Anyway, today I'm feeling positive.

I know what a very special day it will be on Sunday and am really going to try and enjoy it (as opposed to endure it). I will even endeavor to smile a bit more - which will be more likely once I get my hands on the sacred jelly babies.

Please show your support along the route - prove to all the many runners who have come from far outside the borough just how great we all are here in Ealing!

Best of luck to all taking part...
