Not being elitist that is for elite athletes but "running" a marathon isnt about just covering the distance- thats a sponsored walk. Pisses me off that some runners cant get into marathons because of the "Jade Goodies(RIP)" out there. Not about talent it's commitment to the task!! Of course as the thread suggests I would never say this to anyone
I'd rather be at home stuffing my face with pies and ale than flying half way across the world into a badly-managed, shitstorm, hospital pass of a project. Working 12 days solid then getting a further weekend killed by jetlag pisses me off!
F*ck off, just f*ck off you f*cking f*ckers!
North London Runner I trained my arse off for the FLM in 2007 and it took me 6.02 to finish.
I may be a slow runner - it does not mean I am not a runner. Oh and blisters (the first and only time I've ever had them), heat and lack of water didn't help.
As Jim Royle would say "trained your arse off my arse" Blisters are avoidable. You only get out what you put in. The marathon is supposed to be a tough test and is supposed to be run. You know? Like in Greek history? Philipides didnt walk and stop for pies on the way.
Of course I would never say this to anyone-see the thread title

or 4 and a half hours to run a marathon? Did you do ANY training!!!
good morning all
How are you today north london runner..................not out training
No Mr Taxman
Your the wanker that made the mistake so you can't have your Fuc**ng money back
Assumptions! Assumptions! Where do i start
Training is putting in the time to able your body to complete the task. You can run quick marathon on 3 sessions a week and 30 miles.
Not talking about sub 2.30 talking about running a marathon-you know RUNNING!
This thread is called what you would like to say but don't-so stop being a wuss!
Very few people do their best with what time they have-those that do ARE the Elite(not me)
Your language is very offensive and someone should take you outside and run your legs in the nettles-foul mouthed yob!
17,586 posts??? who are you telling to go get a life??? Spend some of "the time you have " running for a change
Not to KatieJane but N L Runner ... but you knew that anyway!
Do you have a degree in staing the Obvious?
LTP - ain't that the truth! I've been training like a mad thing for the GNR, coming back from injury and battling asthma. Over the last couple of weeks, I've been going much faster than previously, problem is I can only sustain the speed for a minute - 90 seconds before I notice I'm not actually getting anywhere near enough oxygen (the black spots and dizzy spells give it away). My GP is doing all she can at the moment to keep my asthma properly managed and I just have to accept, in my current health, a better pace is not do-able.
And the next person who sneers "Paula Radcliffe does it" will reduce me to tears.

p.s. I know the above doesn't consititute a real word, but then again, I didn't get first class honours, so I'm allowed to make mistakes

Didn't get first class honours, Lee?? You obviously weren't putting the effort in
(BTW, neither did I!)
Prime Minister questions is on..............
If Lea the Pea degree(s) were gained by a combination of effort and ability then why doesn't that apply to other endeavours such as running.
Top ranting Seren - well said!
NLR - yeah, I did all that shit to avoid blisters, surgical spirit, shoe a half size bigger, double layer socks, silicone toe caps and vaseline. I still got them.
Not only can people like you not appreciate other people's achievements, the sad thing is, you never enjoy your own either do you, because you're never allowed to say "actually at this time and this place that was good enough" ?
I know it's a "man" thing. It's still pathetic.
No wonder you got blisters with all that on
Double layer socks-waste of money
silicone toe caps-what?
try removing hard skin and keeping you feet soft-simple!
My point is that blisters are not a medal to hang round your neck-brag about not getting them
I'm guessing you may not thank me for my advice
So many things I'm just not allowed to say "out there" in the real world.... "Life is good" is probably the big one.
