It's all started now. I'm feeling fit, spritely and ready to fine tune the training for this year's race... then 'it' happened. I got on the scales. Duh. I've started a special new blog to obsess about my new challenge: losing 9 lbs in 25 days. View my new blog, which will run from today, 1st September until 25th September. Share the pain - feel the burn - avoid the carbs.
