I must have temporarily lost the plot, because I appear to have signed up for a marathon…

Lent eh?

So Lent began yesterday – a time of self sacrifice for God over appoximately 40 days, traditionally 5 Sundays I believe.
And I’m gonna be completely up front and say that I am, in fact, an Atheist.
(So I may very well be inccurate in that last sentence, even though I went to a convent school. But that’s another story altogether…)

Now before you shun me for having no soul and no faith, I do believe in self-sacrifice for something worthwhile.
And since everyone else is doing it, I guess it’s a good opportunity to be a sheep try and make the effort and hopefully not be alone in this ‘giving something up’ scenario.

A big challenge for me with this run will be a change of diet. I’m aware that I will not have to starve myself, in fact, far from it.
However, I’m a big snacker and won’t often say no to a full pack of Choccy Hobnobs (or any chocolate biccy for that matter).

And I do love my Wine. And I love love love my Southern Comfort.

So for this month at the very least, whilst I’m trying to get my stamina up (before starting the 6 month training schedule at the beginning of April) I’m going to try and give up booze and biscuits. Or at the very least cut down.

How hard can it be?

Me? Drink alcohol? NO WAY DUDE!
