Well last night went well, despite having only a few hours to remember what I was going to talk about. The turn out was awesome something like 60+ would be my guess, so hopefully we managed to raise a fair bit of money for mountain rescue. I left before John Radcliffes talk which I saw a couple of years back at LLAMFF. The feedback I got during the burgers and fries break betwen me and Raddy, was awesome, hopefully I inspired a few of them to just get out there and climb.
I have to spend the rest of today making final preparation for the marathon, so some ibuprofen, vasaline and zinc oxide tape are the order of the day. As well as the mental side of trying to relax and feed myself as much as possible. The nerves are starting to set in, so I will have to head into bangor to try and relax whilst suffering death by SPSS!
PS – I HAVE JUST GOT AN EMAIL FROM BUMS TELLING ME THAT BETWEEN ME AND RADDY, WE RAISED £210 FOR THE RESCUE TEAM, THEY ARE HAVING TO PUT IT THROUGH AS A CHEQUE, BUT ADD THAT TOTAL TO THE £550 I HAVE RAISED SO FAR ONLINE, PLUS AT LEAST £150 OFFLINE AS WELL, AND I WILL HAVE EVENTUALLY MADE NEAR £1000 FOR THE TEAM. WOOOHOOO.
ANYWAY THANKS ALOT FOR BUMS FOR ARRANGING THE SLIDESHOW AND JOHN FOR OFFERING HIS SERVICES AS WELL.
