"I Don't believe it!"
I know I am not currently in the best of form but I had based what running I am doing around a race this week - The Bridges of the Tyne 5.
The only problem being that I realised late on this evening that the race was not tomorrow night but today.
Yes, I had missed it!
To be honest it is not the first time I have got the race date wrong, such as the time I drove down to Preston for a half marathon only to find out that I was a week early or the time I drove to Richmond to find That the race was the next day. But at least on those occasions I returned to take part in the race. This is the first time I have actually missed a race.
To rub salt into the wounds I thought, since I had missed out, I would enter the Great North 10km on Sunday, only to find out that entries had closed at lunchtime.
It's just not my day!
