For those readers (if there are any) who are interested, here's an update to my running status. Unfortunately, my ankle injury hasn't cleared up so it looks like I won't be running the London Marathon this Sunday. I'm pretty devastated about this; I've put in a lot of hard miles and it's incredibly frustrating to have to pull out right at the end, but there you go.
I'm hoping whatever it is will clear up soon - this is the longest I've gone without running now for several years and I'm getting terrible withdrawal symptoms.
Sorry for such a miserable post. My drawings remain surprisingly jolly!
