Just had some bad news. It has now been confirmed that Fay will not be allowed time away from work to crew for me in Keswick at the Commonwealth Championships.
I hope England Athletics are able to provide someone to pass me food and drinks at the appropriate time ... and look after me post race.
It has also been confirmed that the England squad will be staying at Keswick Youth Hostel and the 24 hour runners have been given rooms with bunks which are not on the ground floor. I can imagine climbing onto the top bunk after a 24 hr race !!!
I'll have the bottom bunk.
