Ah, I need a pacer - couldn't catch the minute and a half I lost in the first half of Bristol.
1146. Came yesterday. First time I've run this one on the third time of entry. And I have to keep my fingers crossed this time. There's always some little niggle decides to become an op...
Got my number and chip! 2243
Also got a grotty cold!
still nowt for me in the post.
although i have just finished my fancy dress costume
No Cardiff pack forme yet, and I live here
Got my London rejection though!

Stray Celt What time are you pacing? i'm looking to go under 1:35 fingers crossed...
Still waiting for my VLM stuff though? what are my actual chances of getting in at my first attempt...?

I'm still waiting on my Cardiff pack and my VLM rejection (probably) - it's my first year of entering the London marathon and will be my first ever marathon...if I get in!
Hope everyone's training is going ok - I managed to pick up a chest infection so have been a bit set back by that, but running again normally now....well as normally as I can, which is still fairly duck-like!
pingu- my avatar is a clue lol
still no race pace, although it does say on the e-mail, it could take up to the 14th
Got my race pack and my VLM acceptance mag today. Both franked by the dog on arrival at the house!
Number 4446 for me
Daz who said it would be mission impossible?
I did beat my PB by a second this year, laurag, and I think it's about the most annoying thing you can do in competition with yourself! I mean, one second! What's the point in that!! If I missed it by a second, I'd be upset, but I'd know exactly what I needed to do. If I beat it by loads of seconds I'd be really happy that my training was paying off. But one second, what does that mean? Can I stop there? One second in 13.1 miles! At least I know what my race pace is...
I've not had my race pack through yet got my VLM reject though. I too will be racing in pirate kit. Am aiming for around 2:10 if i'm being realistic. Did 2:01:25 at Llanelli but have had a knee op etc this year so am no where near fit enough. As I watched last year on crutches anything is a bonus this year Have a hilly 10 miler planned for tomorrow. Is anyone doing a long run next weekend too or starting to lay off? Can't decide.....
Long hilly one for me in the morning too.
