Agree re Brendan Foster. Why say things like that before he's even finished!
Hoping that it's just a case of chip/timing malfunctions re Minni & Free?
... HOLD THE PHONE... WE'VE FOUND COL... And he's flying!!!
Time to dig deep guys... Sending positive Mojo!
Yeah go col, hopefully minni and Freemers will come back.
Chick- I'm thinking I might have trouble doing 2.08 so maybe I shouldn't bother. Nice to see a Welshman has the fastest marathon times for a Brit.
Barry- I'm hoping there's a chip glitch for Free and Minni
Oomph- wow..Cols splits are very consistent. Looking good.
ok, so officially a crap spectator, missed everyone other than k.f.c, hoping to see o4s soon!
Kiwi-it happens..my other half turned up to watch me finish a HM and I had already finished.
TM starting to come home!
Never heard such nonsense from Foster!
Where's Free & Minni?
Look like Cols nearly there...c'mon now kick hard ,one last big effort
Wow, what a great time to start off with... C'mon guys, dig deep.
Freemers - That's shocking bad luck, you were going so well.
Sorry to hear Free, you were doing well so understandable that your pissed off
Congrats to AA and Ant.
(((Free))) - What happened, you were flying? Alcohol, rest and smash the next one!
Ant & AA - Superb times guys. It looked hot out there?
Quick drop in - so sorry to hear that Freemers.
Well done Ant & AA
oh no Freemers, gutted for you!!!
shall head to Chandos now, navigating the tube will be fun!
Chick- yes it's warm and windy here. Today's marathon reinforces my doubts for week Monday.
There will be mixed emotions in Chandos
O4S - that was an absolutely amazing run. So impressed.
Enjoying - understatement!-watching the Liverpool game
Hi Freemers, Sorry to hear of your bad luck, I guess Minni has had problems also? You are probably feeling crap at the moment, but you made the right decision at the time and have prevented any further damage. At least now you can go away and fix the problem and hopefully come back stronger.
Hi Jack,kfc,Ant AA, col. Well done, it looked like it was getting warm out there? Great time creeping under 3:15 col!
On the Brendan Foster subject, I thought he was well out of order today. I don't think he really needed to make those comments, but then the British media always like to put the boot in. I don't think he would have appreciated the same comments had it been him in that position. I personally do think Mo should stay with the 5 & 10K for a while longer so that he can establish himself as a real legend at those distances, but I am sure he knows what he is doing
Quick check in - 3.42 from me. Ahem. Turns out that training helps. Got as far as 16M on 3.25 pace, then my legs protested. Switched to a 10 minute mile "strategy", enjoyed the music and milked the crowds for all they were worth.
Lovely to see minni & family, freemers, O4S, kiwi, bro and mr bro. Looking forward to hearing more about everyones day!
Chin up Freemers, you seemed quite chipper at the pub. Sorry to see you sooner than expected - roll on Abingdon!
