    There was a recent OBO FB post with a whole finish the quote "I'm a goalkeeper cause" and the general consensus was 'I'm the only person crazy enough'.

    Very quick update as I have a stupidly busy day for a Monday...

    Training plods along at too slow a rate but hoping to pick up on that one from tomorrow. Got more hockey coming up as have mixed squad training Wednesday and then senior county trials Thursday. Just going to have to push through it all.

    To go with the awesome support of OBO... @Craggsy and the amazing folk at Beikou... Well "The Wall" arrived in the post today. Thank you so much.

    As ever folks if you can spare a few quid, or even just share the link with your teammates/clubs /random spenders in the street, I'd be most grateful.

    Thanks!

    Forgot to say... Possible huge thanks to the North West hockey league who subject to committee approval are going to publicise...

    ....unlike another league.

    16 days to go the official twitter page tells me and now I'm in real panic mode. Injury and illness across the weeks, mostly mental has meant training has been minimal. I now have two weeks to somehow go from my 7 or so maximum distance and current 5 miles a day, to getting somewhere near the 15-18 mark.

    It's going to be Rocky (que the montage) esque, but I know I can do this.

    Kit running and modification has started. Thanks to the hockey paper finding those photos of the last guy, I'm now going full full kit, which I hadn't planned on.

    It's not looking great if I'm honest, but I'm not deferring or giving up, I'm going to London, I'm going to do 26.2 miles, even if it takes me the full 8 hours (I want a shiny medal)

    Thanks to all those who have donated so far, if you haven't, we'll the link is in my signature below!

    Cheers
    Will

    Second week of season, played first game of season. Spent entire second half not wanting to be out there. Decided to have Saturdays off, just coach this year.
