How stressed am I??

Almost in tears stressed ... why, just when I am going to do the biggest thing I've ever done in my life does a natural disaster have to happen?

All flights in and out of Britain grounded.

Who knows for how long.

We fly out Monday night - as of today, they've cancelled the latest flights, tonights are going at this stage, but they're advising travellers not to bother and try to rebook or cancel.

What else can I say?

Stressed. to the max.

I can handle missing a few days holiday, I'd be disappointed, but it would be okay. If I have to miss the marathon, I would be incredibly, unspeakably gutted. My body feels great, I'm ready, I'm not even nervous, just excited and ready for it to happen.

Keep everything crossed, pray, or whatever works ... that there is no more ash and what is there clears, quickly!


  1. Lisa, I am keeping my fingers crossed. There is still time and maybe in a day or so the winds will change. Now the marathon, if I am correct is on the 25th. I am sure you will make it by then, you won't have as much time to adjust but you will make it. Please, believe that.
    Lots and lots of hugs.

  2. It will all work out...good luck.

  3. Praying you are able to get here. Last report was that maybe air space will be open 7pm tonight. I understand your stress--I'm supposed to go home to Texas in less than 2 weeks and *shrug*.

  4. OMG I am going to be keeping my fingers crossed and saying a prayer to the running gods for you!!! You WILL get there girl and you will have YOUR day to shine!

  5. As soon as I saw that on the news last night I thought of you!

    I hope you manage to get there on time!

  6. I was just thinking. Any word from the marathon organizers? There must be lots of people in your position and that includes elite runners. Deena Kastor was going to run London this year and unless she is already there she may have trouble making it.
    And what about air quality there?
