Tick box to skip a year

Much to my surprise my entry to the London Marathon in 2008 was accepted in the ballot.  The last time I got a place like that was for Paris in 1999.  Every other marathon I’ve always run under a charity’s golden bond scheme.

The acceptance form has a useful box which allows me to defer my entry until 2009.  With my knee still not working properly after I tore the meniscus back in March, despite an apparently successful operation, this looks to be my only option.

I’m going to give it a couple of weeks before I send in my deferral but I’m not confident of getting from zero to marathon shape on a dodgy knee in the time available. In fact, I’m not sure I could pull off 200 yards right now.
