Gul, It's an interesting point in terms of the bag as I was debating whether I actually need to bother as my wife will meet me at the finish and I only really need my phone, wallet, hand towel, deodorant, tracksuit bottoms and fresh socks, but then of course there is the issue of the medal and t'shirt as no kitbag means you won't get either and personally I want mine.
I am not sure what is required to get someone to collect it, I think a letter of authority from you and a signed copy of your drivers licence if I remember correctly. They'd also need your kitbag as well now.
Final instructions pdf will be with us very soon so hopefully a lot of questions will be answered.
Out for an half arsed effort at spin first thing, which probably did me more good after yesterdays 22 than trying to go hard. Recovery run after work.
g=dawg, you'll have no idea where you are all week having done that long run today. Nice confidence booster though. They are a great shoe, but make sure you've done some work in them first.
OO, Same here re marathon medals. I started out having them framed and wall mounted with my race number or raceday pic, however as it became apparent that I wouldn't be stopping at 2 or 3 I have them all in my drawer. I don't usually pay much interest to a finishers medal however I do for a marathon as they represent quite a bit more in terms of sweat and sacrifice.
SBD- Haha, edgy times!! That is some selection of big runs there!
Thoughts on todays VMLM e-mail re the automatic entry into the Wanda world age group champs? Not quite sure how it w ill work as the e-mail suggests that we will all start with the other runners in our gender and age groups, so lots of mini starts as each age race may be a first over the line out and out race?
Oh and that makes it a two medal day!
Gul, as noted above, if you do get a cold now, it's pretty good timing as the training demands are reducing and you are then very unlikely to have one come VLM. The worst time to start feeling it is 5 days out! Sweating buckets when it isn't now hugely warm/humid does denote there is something being fought off.
SBD- good going on the reps, always nice to see that progression and strong finish.
Off out for 13 shortly.
