Nothing like the support of your colleagues

I've sent the obligatory email to a few dozen people at work letting them know I'm doing this again. This serves two purposes:
  1. Means I've got more people monitoring me to make sure I'm actually training
  2. Explains why I'm hobbling to meetings, without me having to relive the agony from a particularly painful run.

Now, I've been at my work for coming up for four years, so know a lot of people. A small percentage of these I can actually bear, so I let them know what I was doing.

And the response?

Good luck?

We're rooting for you?

Aren't you brave?

Not a chance. I've had “didn't you die last time?” and “nutter”.
