Hi, I've been looking up the British London 10k on 8 July and had a couple of questions. The first one is, is this a race you would recommend? I entered it and got a place but because I recently did a 10k near Dublin my husband questioned the sanity of travelling c. 200 miles in day to run 6.2 miles and when I hinted about the London one he said that he saw no sense in travelling that distance for a 10k (we're going to Scotland for a holiday at the end of August to take in the Scottish Open). So I was prepared to knock it on the head and stick to runs in my own area or at least in Munster. The thing is I forgot that I was going to do it for Special Olympics GB and got an email from one of their people on Thursday thanking me for choosing them! So now I feel like I have to go and do it or at least pay the £250 that they were hoping I'd raise from sponsorship. I could afford to travel to London and stay there but I'm not sure if it would be easier all round to just pay up and write it off to experience. I'm not going to let down the charity but I'm wondering would it be better to go and do it (and feel like I really did something for them) or just pay them the money and not do the run (and feel awful when I think that I might have enjoyed doing the run) - I'm easily guilt-tripped as you may have noticed. Any suggestions?
